42 year old man out fishing with his father drowned. Thats number 63 people since 2001 becareful if you fish in the Duct. Cuase of death should be in next week on the Two DWR divers who died at the aqueduct in February during a routine inspection at the Dos Amigo Pumping Plant. Safety tips for fishing in the aqueduct Know where the safety ladders and safety lines are located. The ladders are on both sides of the aqueduct, spaced 500 feet apart and marked by bright yellow paint. Safety lines are strung on plastic floats, close to bridges and other structures that cross the aqueduct. Wear a life jacket or preserver. Children especially should wear life preservers at all times -- and should never play near the aqueduct. Observe all posted warning signs, do not climb over fences or fish from bridges. Stand back from the concrete sides of the aqueduct. Wear rubber-soled shoes for safe footing. Never go into the water to land a fish, recover fishing gear, or any other reason. IF YOU FALL INTO THE WATER: Stay calm. Look for the nearest downstream ladder or float line. Swim or float to the ladder to climb out, or grab the line and pull yourself to the bank. If you are unable to immediately locate a safety ladder or line, relax your body. Let the back of your head and your shoulders come to the surface. Pull your knees tightly into your chest and tread water with your arms. Raise your face out of the water every five to 10 seconds and take a deep breath. Repeat the breathing as you continue to tread water with y0our knees up.
