Drowning and burning alive ... absolutely terrifying ways to leave this Earth.

Damn I'm only 6 months 30 and feel blessed to hear someone pass younger than you. So sorry to hear this news. So eerie to die so young.

This one of the reasons why I don't travel even though I have the capital to do so.

I would suspect foul play. That say he was a weak swimmer but come on the water isn't that deep. They said 7-8 feet deep. Andrew Yoon is a smart guy surely he would have tried to jump when he touched the ground.

And who goes swimming by the themselves when they travel to visit friends? Sounds suspicious.

Yep. Condolences to his friends and family. For everyone else, be careful out on the water. Fatigue can sneak up on you like you wouldn't believe. Doubly so if you've been drinking (not sure if he was). Almost happened to me once.

Fatigue should have absolutely nothing with drowning in calm, reasonably warm water, if you really know how to be in that water.

I really didn't want to join in on this conversation until I read your comment .

Just stop already, a man died and you figure that fatigue shouldn't be an issue ? smh ....

Cobra, shut the fuck up. Swimming and walking are two different things.. I can't die while walking while I almost drowned when I turned 18 if it hadn't been for my friend that saved my life.
