    Considering they ignored the warning signs and other visitors pleading with them to get out of the water...... I'd say they qualify for this years Darwin Award.

    Did they think the signs saying "do not cross" and the guardrails were merely decorative?? As awful as this is . . .stupid is as stupid does.

    Did they die AS they went over, or after they hit bottom.
    I wonder if the same things went through their minds as that guy who's parachute didn't open.

    When you do stupid things like this you take your chances.
    What was in their heads (air).
    Did they think that the signs were not serious?

    When I lived in Arizona, I read several stories each year about people falling into the Grand Canyon. Maybe somebody needs to invent clothing that converts into a giant encompassing air bubble when someone is falling so they can bounce safely to the bottom.

    I feel sorry for the dumb fucks that called them friends.
    Keep cleaning up that gene pool.

    I'm sorry. The military could have used a few more"good" men and women.
