You have to expect that a few people will always succeed in finding ways to drown.
Our news is full of news of people fulfilling that fact.
But drownings seem to be reported as the result of tragic accidents.
The truth is most are the result of tragic stupidity.
Swimming in rough conditions, not recognising rips or outside the flags, fishing off rocks in heavy seas, tying fishing nets to legs, no lifejackets in boats, crossing flooded rivers.............
Spending even more taxpayers money on water safety will never solve stupidity.
