    Make sure you send those folks who took a chance going on thin ice the bill for this response.

  2. Mike says:

    I was fishing when I seen this happen yesterday it was so horrible as I was fishing with my kids. Felt so helpless could not do anything to help due to not being able to reach them of course. Could you please give me an update on the child he was probably only 5 or 6 years old. It was hard time sleeping last night. And for the comment from Matt if you seen this in person I’m sure you would not of commented like u did.
