Should There Have Been Signs???
Should there have been no swimming signs posted in an area where a 6 year old boy drowned in the Mississippi River last week? The family of Jr. Thao thinks so. The boy disappeared in the water last Monday at Pettibone Park. His body was recovered two days later.
The boy's sister, Shoua Thao, says that the area should have had signs warning that it was dangerous to swim there. We checked with the Lacrosse city attorney's about the matter....they did not want to comment until a review of policies had been done first.
Officials say the area where the family was swimming last Monday is dangerous because it's next to the main shipping channel and the currents are swift.
