    Very tragic. Especially when all a swimmer needs to do is turn over and float on his back to rest. He can then either resume his swim or continue to float while waiting for help. Sadly, so many people, who are not experienced swimmers (although they may otherwise be in very good condition and excellent athletes), do not think of this. Instead they panic and wear themselves out. I have read of these tragedies so many times and it is so frustrating. Only experienced swimmers should be swimming in open water.

    Beware, one of my best high school friends drowned in a small reservoir in 9 feet of water the summer following high school graduation. He was a great athlete and healthy in every way, yet just 9 feet of water claimed his life. When swimming, always use the buddy system.
