How could this possibly have ‘seemed like a good idea at the time’?
They set up the camera, on the water’s edge, and jumped in the water. It was all over in three minutes. They never did come back out.
Three young lads, relatives, decided to film themselves in the water. They were scant feet from the water’s edge. So close to safety and rescue, they still drowned.
It was a situation where police went looking for the youths who never came home again. The footage from the camera filled in the missing information.
Ramesh Chandel, a friend of the trio, said: ‘Chetan seems to have to gone towards the deep end of the pond and started drowning.
‘Radhey Shyam and Sudarshan went to save him and lost their lives as well.’
They were only a few feet from the water’s edge. The panicked victim seems to have done what most drowning victims are known to do — clutch at his would-be rescuers, and endanger their lives, too.
Basic water safety training and swimming lessons could have saved their lives. If they’d reached out to him from the edge, or if he knew even how to do a basic back float, and kick his feet, he might still be with us today.
Here in America, about ten people drown in non-boating incidents every day. As the weather turns nicer, and people head out to the water, let this story serve as a somber reminder of the importance of water safety for our selves and loved ones.
Get out there and enjoy the outdoors, naturally — but be safe while you’re doing it.
