And if he didn't look like he was struggling.. why would there be 75 on lookers?

And what kind of dumbass needs an hour to drown themself?

haha I guess nobody at that beach knew what the hell they were doing.
I wouldn't even think twice about a guy standing shoulders deep in 60 degree water. I've watched my looney brother swin half way across the lake in water that was hardly above 50-55. It took the idiot a hour to susscum to hypothermia, at that point he probably just collapsed and drowned.

The thing that gets me is why an island with (swimming?) beaches doesn't have kind of trained SAR personal, because of funding? That's bullshit, the sheriffs office in fucking lincoln Ne has SAR divers. They don't even have life guards? Granted with the water that cold the LG's would be off duty, but I would think an hour would be plenty of time to find one and get him down there. Coast guard could'nt get a boat in there....my ass....I'm sure they have rubber beach landing craft on every cutter.

Sounds like typical gov't finger pointing BS, keep passing the buck till the sheeple forget what even happened....ewwww look shiney!!!

Mandreas duly noted you'd just go for a leisurely swim and be all "good day mate fancy a pull into shore" him "fuck you the dingo ate my wallaby" you "vitaminavegimite" . Once again my perception of it.

Which is a shame that no one responded had that been the case. 2 men in the water could have easily gone out there safetly even if he was suicidal. I dunno...

I'd stay 10 meters away and just ask the retard what the fuck he's doing and ask him if wants to come back to shore/needs help to get back to shore. If he says leave me, fuck him.

I wouldn't push the point. Just say, "yo dood wanna come back to shore?" He says, "FUCK YOU I WANNA DIE." "Okay, bye."

Exactly I'm all for giving them the bleach to drink or the razor to slit their wrist.
