As a parent this is terribly sad

There is good and bad everywhere shame a young lad of 14 looks to have paid with his life - for having a laugh and being stupid a young lad dose not deserve to die

Jesus ďHĒ Christ, there arenít half a lot of sanctimonious people on here arenít there? (Yeah, yeah..I know "Pot" " Kettle".. )
Iíll tell you something, I didnít know this boy, or his parents, so truthfully I donít actually care if he lives or dies as it really means nothing to me. Thatís not to say I donít feel sympathy with his parents, if indeed they were not responsible for turning him into a thief.
Lots of speculationÖ ď the boy fell into a wrong crowdĒÖ. ďhe was probably going to return itĒ Etc. How on Earth can anyone know what was going to happen? He may well have just borrowed it as a prank, or he may have intended to steal it and burn it out of maliciousness. I donít know and Iím pretty confident no one else on here knows either.
Nosís reaction is pretty understandable, especially when as he says, he has had to deal with teenage scrotes damaging his property and making his life miserable, Iím confident that if I was unlucky enough to have suffered the same crap, I would think ďserves the little fecka right!Ē

Point out to me where I said he deserved to die please?

If you do incredibly stupid things they catch up with you. FACT.

You act as though I'd said 'Paedophile' in Paulsgrove.
I don't think I need to point that out as you have made it quite clear what your opinions are.

It is evident from your posts that you don't possess a great deal of intelligence and certainly very little compassion, so I'm not going to exhange any further posts with you on this matter and will leave you to your rantings.

caught the end of southeren news last night, where they were showing footage of the sea and land area, but one thing did strike me, at the end, the new's crew did not bring the distraught family of the missing boy into the picture, and the boy who lived made no comment and much the same for his family, this struck me that perhaps the family's were known to the locals and the boys had been known troublemakers, as no comment is rare in these circumstances, if this were to be so my simpathy would also be minimal, time will tell

Damn, I was looking forward to replying to your personal insults.

I am curious to why the Coastguard helicopter wasn't launched when the boys first got on their mobile. The helicopter could have been no more than 2 miles away from the boys. Was it too windy, not a 24hr service or too expensive cheaper to send the inshoreLB?

If these boys were on the phone for 45 mins before getting swamped, helicopter was within 2miles probaly less, lifeboat station ILB & AWB within 2 miles. You couldn't get much better cover. What went wrong (other than them nicking a boat in the first place)?

I suppose because they weren't in distress at that point, the story said they were laughing and joking on the phone or something? Helicopters are expensive things and I know the SAR helicopter here doesn't launch unless specifically requested to.

At that time of night - in those conditions - 2 boys in a rowing boat at sea were an accident about to happen.

Looks like the kid died - they found his jacket only.

Seems he snook out of bed to do this 'terrible deed' , met up with his mate and drowned. I really doubt they were going to trash the boat all considering.

I really feel for everybody who knew this adventurous kid.
