On Monday, June 25, 2018.. two men drowned in the Niagra River in Buffalo, NY. 29-year-old Mario Guthrie(black guy) was trying to collect drift wood to make furniture while another man, 46-year-old Scott Vater(white guy) held the end of a rope that was attached to Guthrie’s wrist. As Guthrie gets in.. it’s clear he is not comfortable in the water and is not a strong swimmer, and with currents like in the Niagara River, even the most experienced swimmers have trouble. Once he realizes the rope is too short for him to grab a piece of wood he lets go of it and grabs onto the floating wood. Due to the currents the wood slips and spins and Guthrie goes under and panics. Soon after, Vater jumps in to try to help, but because Guthrie is panicking.. he drags him down and he never can get himself above the water after that. They both sink as people all around scream and film yet do nothing to help. But had they helped they more than likely would’ve been pulled under as well. Both bodies were recovered an hour later.
