Luke Knox’s Family: Drowning was preventable
It is with great sadness that we report the death of three members of the Knox family, who drowned while swimming in Lake Michigan on July 22. The Knoxes were strong swimmers and had been swimming in the lake for years, but on this fateful day, they were caught in a strong rip current and were unable to make it back to shore.
The Knoxes’ death was preventable. If they had been wearing life jackets, they would have had a much better chance of survival. Even strong swimmers can be pulled under by a rip current, and life jackets provide essential flotation and support. We urge everyone to always wear a life jacket when swimming in open water, no matter how strong a swimmer you are.
This tragic incident highlights the importance of water safety. rip currents are notoriously difficult to spot, and they can be deadly. If you are swimming in open water, be sure to stay close to shore and to heed any warnings about rip currents. And always, always wear a life jacket.
