Photo was appalling

June 23, 2013

Your front page photo Wednesday of the teenagers engaged in the horrendous stunt of sliding down the dam wall of Canonsburg Lake was appalling.

These youngsters were trespassing and endangering themselves and others who may have been fishing below the dam. Also, I do not believe swimming is even permitted in the lake. Your photo encourages others to attempt this stupid stunt and may cause a terrible accident or even a fatality. I believe the authorities should discuss these actions with the swimmers before someone is maimed or possibly drowns.
