Tragically Preventable

RIP Marquise Hill, who died over the weekend in a jet ski accident. The most troubling thing is that Hill survived the incident, but drown later because he wasn't wearing a life preserver. Police said:
"It's so important to have a life jacket and a signaling device," Atkeson said. "One keeps you afloat and the other helps us find you."

This is the second athlete in as many months to die in an utterly preventable fashion. To quote Hill Street Blues, "let's be careful out there."
