  • Grace had been soaking in the summer sun all day, and decided that it was time to cool off.

    Holding her father's hand, she tiptoed into the wet sand, waves tickling her feet. As Grace strode deeper into the sea, she tripped and fell. The undertow came at a most inconvenient time, and Grace was swept into the ocean.

    Paddling to the surface, Grace called for her dad. He called back!

    "It's okay, Gracie! Swim back to me!"

    But Gracie was a law-abiding citizen. Underage swimming in the ocean was illegal. She would have to stay put.

    The tide pulled Gracie further and further back until she could no longer make out her father's face. Desperate, she changed her mind, and began to tread her way back to her dad.

    The lifeguard had taken notice. How dare this thug SWIM in the ocean? He dialed 9-1-1.

    Gracie, fighting the waves, saw an army of SWAT police charging onto the shore. She was scared out of her mind, and turned around, hoping to escape the regiment of armed, angry men.

    But the police had the upper hand. A helicopter flew in, propellers roaring over the shallow waters.

    Before long, she was surrounded. Finally, this vicious criminal was brought to justice.

    On trial, Grace pleaded guilty. She was sentenced to ten months in prison, and two more months of community service.

    All because she had been swimming in the ocean.

  • What's the point?

    Imagine this, a boy was swimming in a pool and he drowned. Does that mean that swimming in a pool should be illegal? Of course not.

    Getting bit by a shark is very unlikely. They have no interest in eating us and we are only bitten if we foolcthe shark into thinking we were something decent. The boys parents should have made sure he didn't go out to far into the ocean. So yes it is also the parents fault that he wasn't well supervised. At the same time the boy shouldn't have went very far.

  • It should not be illegal for children to swim in the ocean

    It should not be illegal for children to swim in the ocean. Seriously, ban kids from swimming in the ocean over an incident that is likely more remote than dying in a plane crash? It really is time to stop the bubble wrapping of children and do away with this overprotectionist nonsense.

  • Parents should look after their kids.

    Parents should keep a close eye on their children. There should not be laws in place that have to do the parents job for them. Children want to play and the parents have the responsibility to keep them safe so let them play in the ocean but be there with them monitoring their every move. We can't prevent kids from living life.

  • No, that's ridiculous.

    It's very reasonable for children to be required to swim only under adult supervision, since sometimes the ocean can be dangerous. However, banning children from swimming in the ocean at all is a ridiculous overreaction. Getting bitten by a shark is extremely unlikely. Other dangers are far more prevalent, and most of them can be prevented by having an adult present.

  • Absolutely not. The simple act of swimming should not be illegal.

    I think parents should be more careful, and watch where their children go. In other words, parents should be vigilant and aware of what the children are doing and their surroundings. Regarding the ocean, anyone can be injured by any organism, in this case a shark. With the argument above, you might as well make it illegal for any other person to swim in the ocean.

  • You can't prevent this from happening,

    Even if you were to make it illegal for children to swim in the ocean it would prevent sharks, or any sea creature for that matter, from biting other people. It's a risk of being in the ocean, I think it should be the parent's decision whether they want their children to swim the ocean. Yes it sad about what happened to the young boy but it wouldn't do much to make it illegal to for young kids to swim in the ocean.
