There are signs and bouys in the water and red markers to warn people of this danger. It's sad but some people just ignore the warnings! It's the same as driving over the speed limit and people die from that also. Life is not without risk. My heart goes out to this family but more signs will not change people's behavior.

Personally the beach is disgusting, especially to go swimming. Close the entire thing. Most of the people i see down there are scary anyway.

I knew Mike, its sad to here what happened to him. He had a good soal, a good heart and was a great guy. He will be missed, I will miss him greatly. They should close that freaking beach ASAP. How many people need to die at the same location for the city to get the hint?
