Has there been an inordinate amount of drownings this year or is the news just publishing more stories about it than normal? Anecdotally it seems very high to me. Anyone have the stats?

These guys knew how to swim. There must be another reason for what happened.

I should try to learn again. I flunked YMCA swimming lessons when I was 12 and spend a lot time in or on the water now.
