    "Such an unnecessary death. If there had been proper warnings and statements that there are in fact man-eating crocodiles nearby, I am sure Lauren would not have risked swimming,"

    Really? If they put up signs saying a crocodile sanctuary was 45 miles away, would she really have thought there was a risk there???

    Obviously it's tragic and sad, but the outrage at the Indian government is ridiculous.

    seriously. I have several pictures of people swimming in the swamp right past a sign that said "Swim at your own risk, Alligators present."

    Now Alligators aren't THAT big, and I don't swim, but most people ignore the signs and the risks anyways.

    Plus didn't it say that only four deaths have occurred since 1987? that's less than shark fatalities isn't it?

    Sisters Lauren, left, and Emily Failla pose for a photo together. Lauren was killed in a crocodile attack in India late last month. Her older sister Emily died in a rock-climbing accident in 2006.​


    What a tragedy to the family.

    I would make sure a sign went up there now to warn of the possibility of crocodiles. I guarantee that if I read that, I definitely wouldn't even get out of the car.

    Sounds like a family of unnecessary risk takers to me. As sad as it is, you take the risks, you cant blame anyone else.

    The crocodile had an acquired taste for exotic cuisine. Who the fuck goes swimming in India; unless your at a resort?

    exactly. If mountains were meant to be climbed they'd have stairs! :24:
