    Whether or not he was drunk he is in my prayers… that is sad… as well as whomever he landed upon. I hope they both recover completely. Go Vols!

    Ugh… he died. R.I.P. Only twenty… tragic. I hope the person he fell on has a better outcome.

    Feel bad for family and the loss. However if it was his own doing, survival of the fittest finally takes hold. Weed out the weak and stupid before they breed, but that is said with assumption he did it to himself.

    There’s one thing that ticks me off more than anything else on the internet….people who make jokes when someone has died. It’s disgusting. It doesn’t make you witty or cool. It makes you an a-hole. These are REAL PEOPLE, with loved ones who are grieving. The ones left behind will NEVER be the same.
    So what if this guy contributed to his own death in some way? Those of you passing judgement…I guess you’ve never made mistakes? Never acted carelessly??? Yeah…we’ve all done stupid stuff, but most of us were lucky enough that we didn’t ruin or lose our lives (or anyone else’s). But that doesn’t make you better or smarter…it makes you blessed. And I guess some of you just don’t get it.
