  1. We need to have life guards on all our major beaches around the island . Condolences to his family.

  2. So sad. Why don’t the authorities make swimming a part of the PE curriculum. I’ve never seen someone dying from not being able to play cricket or football. But I see many people dying annually from not being able to swim.

  3. just saying…you can be a good swimmer and still die…from many articles i have read here in the past as indicated by family members……………..?????

  4. juss saying in a structured setting you would learn very essential life saving techniques.
    How many good swimmers know what to do if you encounter a rip tide?
    Totally agree with you Just Saying
