  1. That picture is shameful. Of course we know it’s stock photo, not the actual drowning, but imagine how his family feels seeing it. Shame on you all! Shame!

  2. How horrible and shame on you for showing that picture when a life has been lost. A child. An innocent little boy who was probably scared out of his mind. His mother will never be the same. Show some respect jerk.

  3. So disturbing for you to post this picture. The family doesn’t deserve this on top of the grief they are already feeling. Shameful reporting!

  4. The stock photo you used to attract attention is shameful, disrespect and insensitive to this tragedy. My heart aches for this family. Do better…be better…Be kind.

  5. Go fuck urself CHARLES STILLWATER thats not a nice picture to put ur name on it’s a buddy’s kid im sure he n his fams appreciate such a photo .WIN ONE NYC. F…. YOU MAN IDIOT BIG DUMMY… from OCALA with love suka!!!
