This is Why I Generally Stay Out of the Water

ST. PETE BEACH — Handyman Wilbur Drummond was working next door when he joked to the young woman swimming in the murky waters of Boca Ciega Bay that she better watch out.

"I said, 'Girl you better get out of the water,' " he said. "What if some big fish takes a bite out?"

Minutes later, he heard screaming.
This is actually the daughter of an acquaintance of mine. I don't know her well enough to call her a friend, but the whole family - those I've met - are good people.

Quick thinking and some basic first aid from her sister probably helped a lot.

I wish her all the best.
