Because it’s the summertime, therefore, a LOT of drowning are currently happening, from the Front Page Sections, translated…
Four middle school students got together, went to the fishermen’s wharf close to the dock of the fishermen’s association in Hsiao-Gang, Kaohsiung to fish, a teenager, Lai, went swimming in the water, but because he got too tired, his three friends couldn’t manage to pull him back up to shores, he fell back into the oceans hard, and was lost, twenty minutes later, when the fire department discovered him, he was already a dead body, at the bottom of the harbor.
The Hsiao-Gang subprecinct’s officer pointed out, that the thirteen-year-old second year middle school student, yeste3rday afternoon at around two, went with his three younger neighbors, to horseplay by the docks, and Lai had gone alone for a swim for half an hour, the other three hollered that they wanted to head home, he’d made multiple attempts to climb back up to shore using the floating markers, but had failed, the three younger kids saw, wanted to give him a pull, but their hands slipped and he fell back into the oceans.
The three younger kids told, that as they saw Lai fell in, everybody was dumbfounded, and they could only start hollering out his name on the shores, and a member of the group called the family of Lai. As Lai’s father got to the scene, he looked very miserable, the fire department got the call and came, and put on their diving outfits and quickly, went in search of the student, about twenty minutes later, they’d recovered his corpse, at the bottom of the harbor, he was not breathing, and, he died, on the way to the hospitals.
The principal of his middle school stated, that the school had told the students to take precautions when swimming, but, the tragic accident still wasn’t prevented before school started.
And so, this, is an accidental death, but, this could’ve been prevented, had these children NOT gone off to play in the waters, I mean, it’s the OCEAN for crying out loud, and, you can’t swim in the oceans safely, and, without calculating into the “equation” the unforeseen circumstances you might meet up with in the waters, that, was what caused this kid to get killed.
