    RIP lads.
    I have often wondered what it must have been like to hit that water in the dark.... and have that container drag them straight down.
    Did any blokes that went into the canal actually get away with it ? Get themselves up and to the bank ?

    Ten did then.... 16 went in.

    RIP lads. Sadly many minor and major mistakes led to a tragedy. As with all early deaths of young people you wonder what they may have become. Condolences to their families and friends.
