  • What happened in the accident? Did he go down under the water and wasn't able to save himself? Did he get hung under the water? Where did it happen? My son loves to white water raft and kayak and I was just wondering.

  • My heart goes out to the family.I know the pain they are feeling.Our grandson passed away 3 years ago at the age of 5. Tomorrow is his birthday and he would have turned 8. This is our 3rd christmas without him. Our hearts are still hurting very much.Today has been a bad day for our daughter.She lives in Hickory North Carolina and we would do anything to be with her right now but our money is very very slim. We are just getting all our bills paid each month.As for christmas we are just going to enjoy being with our family with out any gifts this year.But we are very thankful to be able to do that.I will pray for this family.

  • I don't know what happened to this young man. I do know they had to search for him. He was not a novice at kayaking. We will probably learn more when we go to the funeral home later this week.

  • I was reading about this accident on news channel 9 web page if this young man is Russell Burrows. It happened in Chattanooga and you can go there to read more about the accident. I will remember this family in my prayers. Its so terrible when a young person is taken from us. My boys half brother was killed in February in a motorcyle accident and it sure touch my heart and hit home. He was only 20 years old and left a small son. I pray for his mom and cant even imagine her life without him.!!!!
