People Don't "Look like they are Drowning" When They Are Indeed Drowning


"In the summer of 2002 at U.S. Coast Guard Air Station New Orleans, a young aircrewman had just returned
with his crew from Lake Maurepas, west of Lake Pontchartrain. A boat with a family of five aboard had capsized
during a squall, and he had deployed to assist the survivors. He began telling his story:
“We arrived on scene and all five of them were in the water; some clinging to debris, some not. As we hovered
above the scene, two of the victims appeared to be looking up at us, treading water. I hurriedly changed into my
wetsuit when I heard the pilot say, ‘They don’t look like they are in any immediate danger. They can wait for
the boat.’
I said, ‘No Sir, they look like they are drowning! ’”

Report: Buster Posey Out For The Season


Multiple sources are reporting that reigning NL Rookie of The Year and World Series Champion Buster Posey is out for the season.

This is excerpted from Chris Haft story on MLB.com:


"Club sources didn't explicitly divulge Posey's condition, which wasn't expected to become fully known until he undergoes a MRI. But before the Giants' announcement, multiple insiders did speak of Posey's leg with an absence of hope. The injury might include torn ligaments.

Posey, 24, was hurt during Wednesday night's 12th inning as he absorbed a home-plate collision with Florida's Scott Cousins, who scored the tiebreaking run in the Marlins' 7-6 victory."
