    i am not a good swimmer and deeper water would definitely make me more anxious. some may even panic and that's just a step away from death.

    That makes sense. It's not the deep water, it's you.

    Sad case.That river is just a tiny trickle really with a few swirls.You'd have to really try to drown yourself there..

    As a tip to swimmers: Just swim in the first top 6 inches or so. Works for me,even over the Mariana Trench..

    There may have been copious amounts of alcohol involved.
