SWIMMING IN CALIFORNIA DELTAS AND RESERV0IRS ARE NOT SAFE
Just this past Saturday June 5, 2010, a 11 year old girl lost her life when she drowned in the delta in Pittsburgh California. This is a common occurrence, during the summertime. People can’t wait to get to the water.
It is my opinion, swimming in Deltas and Reservoirs are not safe.
Anytime you have running water there is a undertow even the most experience swimmer can drown.
Last summer this happen to a friend of mines son. He was swimming in Lexington Reservoir in Los Gatos California, like he had done a dozen times. The witnesses said he had, went under the water and never came back up. The officials said he probably got caught in a under tow.
If people are going to continue to swim in Deltas and Reservoirs life jackets should be mandatory. I think they should make it a law no swimming in Deltas and Reservoirs. How many more lives have to be lost before they take this serious problem. This tragedy last Saturday didn’t have to happen. I say to all parents don’t let your kids swim in Deltas and Reservoirs it’s not worth their lives just for a few hours of fun..
