Another tragidy Happened in Mirboo North, Victoria, Australia

According to Google: Mirboo North is a town in Victoria, Australia, located 155 km east of Melbourne
A tragic news happened to a Mirboo North resident appeared in theage of Australia:
Mirboo North resident Leighton Erbs died after being swept off rocks near Inverloch on Saturday afternoon.
Tributes were pouring in for Leighton, who was standing with friends on a rock shelf at Eagles Nest, east of Oaks Beach, when a wave swept the group into rough seas just before 1pm.
Life Saving Victoria spokesman Greg Scott said he understood the teenagers were not planning to swim but were engulfed by the force of the wave.
Eagles Nest is "highly hazardous'', according to Surf Life Saving Australia. Its Beachsafe website says the area experiences strong rips and big waves. Police and paramedics performed CPR for nearly an hour on Leighton after he was dragged back to the beach, but were unable to revive him

 Another very sad tragic story, another very familiar story plot. This time it happened near Victoria of Australia.  Saying too many "another" is very disheartening, but there just no way to soften the blow. What had happened, happened.  We extend our sincere condolences to the family of the young victim and pray God bless him and may he be rest in peace.  In the mean time, however, we are still left without any clue on how to cope and stop or prevent this kind of thing from happening again and again.
