I didn't see this on the news and don't come to this board a lot, so I didn't see this until tonight ...

So tragic and sad :(.

Dh and I were just talking about this kind of thing a few days ago. He was telling me how he used to ride his bike (he was around 10, he thinks lol) from his house to go about a mile and a half away to the Delaware River and just sit and look across to New Jersey to think about things ... this was way back when the river wasn't bordered by shopping centers, hotels, or commercial (fenced) properties ... no fences, no security, no nothing ... and I said it was a different time, even 15 years ago when our girls were young I'd never let them go off alone.

Poor baby. Poor family. Such a shame :(.

In peace,
