A story that went completely under my radar.

ESPN.com: Patriots' Hill mourned as a 'hero until the end'


    On his latest visit home for Memorial Day weekend, Hill and a female friend ventured out on Lake Pontchartrain on a personal watercraft without life vests Sunday night. The two ended up falling off the watercraft in an area of swirling currents near where a major shipping canal runs into the lake.

    While the woman survived by grabbing a piling and holding onto it until she was rescued, the 24-year-old Hill, who friends described as a good swimmer, drifted away and disappeared until searchers pulled his body from the water on Monday afternoon, about 17 hours after the accident.


This is a really tragic story and drowning deaths always turn my stomach slightly. May the man rest in peace and condolences to his family.

So sad.

Might be my fear of water speaking, but I'd never get on a boat w/o a life jacket.

That women must feel horrible though. It's one thing to have someone die right around you. It's got to be a higher level of grief when you know that person died saving you.
