These are not the first, many more students, others, shall drown before the year is done. All, if not most, would be preventable.
99% would not know how to swim, 99% would swim where they are not familiar though we are an Island nation with all kinds of streams inside.
There is no national program and being too protective ONLY to forget lack of skills in times of showmanship...

I think you need to give due publicity for many lives saved by lifesavers in many beaches in the country,,,what we see today is only drowning incidents are highlighted,,,,

what is this obsession people have with the sea? Swim in a pool for god's sake.

Our foolish youngsters will never to be corrected in spite of somany warnings. Only these nutty youngsters should be blamed and no others.

Most of the people assess the sea condition with the size of the waves coming to the Beach, this is never a factor to decide whether it is dangerous or not. Because most of these death happen due to sea current, even a smaller sea current could slowly drift you away, even if you can swim if you dont understand this scenario it will be difficult to escape from it
