I don’t know much about the show “Glee” and never seen it and don’t plan to but the death of Naya Rivera is definitely hearbreaking. She was too young and she’s got a 4 year old son who is going to grow up without a mother.
This could be a big time wake-up call to all you swimmers out there. It doesn’t matter the skill level of a swimmer you are. Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or expert swimmer… something like this could happen to anyone.
The reports aren’t saying anything about what happened out there. She was probably a good deep swimmer which was why she didn’t wear a life-vest… she probably didn’t think she would need one but reading about Lake Piru, it definitely looks dangerous out there. Lake Piru had many deaths and accidents there in the past. Being way out in the lake is very deep, you can’t touch anything… she was probably struggling and went out of breath. Even at lakes can have really strong waves due to strong wind. Not sure how windy it was when that happened to her. Doing a little reading on Lake Piru, it’s a very dangerous lake and from the pictures I’ve seen, looks kind of scary out there too. I can see how it took the police forever to find her…. glad they did, though and now her family can give her proper burial real soon.
I feel bad for her kid, though. He’s only 4 and think what he went through being alone on that boat.
It’s always sad when a young talent dies. My heart goes out to her family and her 4 year old.
