    Non coastal people think they can swim and drown without knowing the danger! This has happened a lot too many times to be rare!

    The beaches of western belts specially after Goa to southern region are not safe for enjoying. Even swimming experts are lost Thier lifes. Venturing despite of warning is a grave mistake. Certain point of time Life guards are can't save as it is risky to them. Rest in Peace. Sorry for the parents.

    Even life guards have their own limitations 60% result is commendable. It is our own responsibility to save our own life and not of others for sure.
