Fire Chief dives into lake to retrive friends hat

.....and hasn't been seen since. Maybe he is holding his breath. This happened at Lake St. Clair in Michigan over the weekend.

This was important enough to talk about, but not important enough to post a news story? Maybe everyone ignored him for doing something so stupid and he went home alone to cry.

No actually it wasn't important enough to talk about.

Has anyone here not jumped into a lake to retrieve a hat?

Many of us have, but not all of us have perished.

So here's a link:
http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/s...unday/34494222

Captain is being charged with BWI, probably everyone aboard was drinking. He jumped in Friday, without a life jacket, to save a hat and never surfaced. Nobody was thinking clearly enough to get a good GPS location to start search and rescue efforts. Miles from shore, in rough water, he drowned.

We had high winds and it's a wide shallow lake, reportedly four foot waves.

We have had continued windy conditions and some storms, which have hampered search, and continue to hamper what is now a recovery effort.

It's a stupid hat. Why risk it?

Maggie McFly would beg to differ.

Re: Fire Chief dives into lake to retrive friends hat

I understand he jumped in to re-trive the hat, which leads to the logical questions: Who trived the hat to begin with? And what the fuck does it mean to "trive"? Is no one asking these questions? Lazy journalism and police work.
