Yet again another early mid 20's male drowns more from intoxication more than anything else, in the charles river. Where are the smiley face killer tinfoil hat people? Young men need to learn how easy it is to drown and how stupid and vulnerable they are when they are drunk. Women are taught to keep their wits about them and be cautious at night early and often.

I certainly agree that young men tend to think - foolishly - that they're invincible, and let down their guard when they really shouldn't. With that being said, however, this isn't a case of a drunk guy peeing into the river and then falling in. This is a guy who - for whatever reason - fell asleep or passed out, and was shoved into the water by some other fucker.

From what I saw on the news tonight, they were friends and he was goofing around. Obviously took it way too far, really sad.

It was 2 friends drunk messing around, it was a accident they have known each other for years. He didn't push him thinking that he was going to kill him Lenny's a good dude! If it was intentional why would he stick around while they searched for him if he did it knowing he was going to kill him? But hey it's the internet where the idiots know everything right
