Tonight's news says the 14 year old is in critical condition, divers had to locate his body (not good, that means he was under for some time). That section of the rim canal is hundreds of feet wide, and the buoy marking the sunken boat looks to be right in the middle of the channel. I sure hope the boy pulls through, this is terrible news, I can't imagine what the family is going through. I run that section quite often, but I'm a chicken sh#t, I hug the west bank as close to shore as possible along the campground, until I get to Boy Scout Cut, where I can head into the lake (shallow water), and I have a very deep and wide hull. Prayers go out to the family.

Terrible news. I didn't see how anyone that was under that long could make it, but I was sure pulling for him. I can't even imagine what they must be going through. I don't know these folks, but I can assure you it hits home pretty hard. My wife and I discussed this incident in length last night, don't know what I would do if I lost one of my kids. I pray for the family.

The saddest part is they were having the time of their lives at the moment. In an instant, your entire life can change beyond your wildest nightmare. I feel so much pain for them right now. I can't even imagine the hurt. God Bless them.
