    Body of Kathleen Kennedy Townsend's daughter recovered

    She and her son took a canoe to recover a ball that went into the Bay and were blown away from shore. There is no mention of PFD's.

    Maeve McKean is the daughter of Kathleen Kennedy Townsend. ... Robert F Kennedy and the niece of John F Kennedy, the 35th president.

    Sad and ironic that they went to the summer house to get away from the risk of corona in the city

    I have thought that for years. It’s like someone cursed Joseph Kennedy for all the underhanded shady deals he made to get rich.

    All they wanted to do was to paddle a few yards to get a ball and it turned into a disaster. Just shows how unforgiving a big body of water like the Bay can be and you can be that the water was no more than mid-50's. Obviously no PFD's, how hard would it have been to just thrown a couple into the canoe before pushing off? Just a momentary lapse of judgement with awful consequences. Shows how fragile life is.

    Just an example of think before you place your life at risk for a $4.879 ball.
    Probably fun at the start but got haywire in a hurry.
    That is nature.
    You better check and judge before you act.

    For context, the day of the incident the wind was blowing a steady 20, gusts to 30. Water temp low-mid 50's. Many don't realize how dangerous the water can be.

    Sad how some of you allow your politics affect your humanity, Might come back and bite you in the ass.
