these comments are ridiculous, if you didn't need the fire departments or water rescue team because your all mighty off duty cops saved them then why call 911? yes it is a shame that this wonderful man lost his life, and it seems as all the "Bystanders" have something to say negative to say about VOLUNTEER services where no one HAD to show up, NO ONE THERE WAS GETTING PAID!!! VOLUNTEER Departments DO NOT GET PAID FOR TRAINING, Its done on their OWN TIME and OWN FREE WILL, if you don't like what is provided i suggest not to use that lake anymore.
On a positive note, prayers go out to the family, friends and loved ones of all involved, and thank you to all agencies involved in the rescue. and may god be with all of you negative Nancys.
