1. Last month a 15 year old boy went to Hawaii on a guided kayak tour. He and a friend broke away from their group to go ashore and explore tidal pools. Unfortunately, both were washed away by a large wave. One boy was found, the 15 y.o. was not........ This past week, a church group went to Yosemite, a mom and her two sons went in to the water; both boys were washed away in the current, both boys lost thier lives...... So, who is responsible?
