    Just saw that 5 kids,ages 10-17,drowned while on a church outing.They all jumped in to help another child.

    Their all with GOD now,but still a shame.

    I sure hate hearing that I grewup doing floats on that river. My boys are now at the age we go canoeing together and at 9-10 I still feel uneasy about them swimming in the river I have had a couple ruff times in the current myself and know all to well how easy it can get bad in a second. Even us adults should always wear a life vest.

    A terrible trajedy. Those children that jumped into that water are heroes. May god be with them and bring comfort to their families.
