Here is the full story of the recent drowning on Taneycomo. As the story tells, it could have been even worse considering the two gentlemen that survived are in their 70's, and have some health problems.
If something can be learned from this tragedy it is always wear a life vest, and use extreme caution when in heavy current.

Wow. So sad this happened. A very strong message to all of us to think safety at all times.
