  1. This is terrible it happens every time we have a heatwave people throw off their clothes and jump into any stretch of water to cool off not realising that below the surface it could be near freezing. Once a hot sweaty body hit's the cold water they get cramp and drown its so tragic people don't appreciate this simple fact.

  2. Loch Lomond gets deep really quickly. I remember in 2015 I went for a swim in it, and just went out about 15-20 feet from the shore and almost went under. I was lucky to somehow kick hard enough against it to swim back to the shore, but if I had gone any further I'm sure I would have been in a fight for my life.

  3. There’s a hydroelectric dam which empties into Loch Lomond. It’s these undercurrents that are killing everyone There are no warning signs, only local knowledge about this

  4. i nearly drowned before worst feeling knowing your about to drown- i someohow conserved my energy got out of the current and made it back and luckily i was in good shape

  5. sad tragic case but just remember when the RNLI asks for your money at skegness what they are now doing with your money just a taxi service for illegals in the channel i expect deaths at the sea side this summer beacause they are out doing a taxi service

  6. Im confused.. so people are dying at this very lake because it's too deep? Dang, If I couldnt swim at all I just won't go into this lakes deep end. I wonder why people who can't swim want to dive into deep water at this lake. Strange

  7. Telling a story of drowning while having a story about Olympic swimming scrolling along the yellow info bar at the bottom of the screen, how insensitive of sky news.
