You like making jokes about 5 year olds dying? As the father of a five year old, if we were in person Id bitch slap you.

Kennedy misadventures—flying, skiing,
In the book The Kennedy Heirs it
mentions how a family friend took
teenage Caroline for a flying
lesson without Jackie’s permission.
She got angry when she found out.
After all the family’s tragedies,
she didn’t want to tempt fate.
JFK Jr, then 13 and a couple of
years too young for lessons, wanted
to be able to fly that day, too.

himself,his wife Carolyn and his
sister in law when his plane
plunged on the way to Martha’s Vineyard.

Sorry, but there’s no excuse for stupidity. A very windy day. In a canoe. On the Chesapeake. Maryland on lockdown.
Sometimes the wind "comes up" fairly rapidly. That said, I'm not a big fan of canoes in anything other than glass-smooth water.
Do they know if they had life jackets on?
