Touchdown and an extra point!

Story says 8 dead, two missing as of 5:48 PM? Maybe Darwin will kick a field goal to make it 10-0.

OMG I read the comments. What nasty people there are outside of Fark. Jokes about illegal immigrants swimming across the border, at least two people hoped John McCain was among those drowned and at least one claiming it was sign if the end times. Holy Fark!

Yeah, I got sucked down that rabbit hole just now. People are gross.

There's a flood coming and the police go to this guys house and tells him to evacuate.
The guy says "No, the good lord will save me"
So the water rises and he's in the second floor and boat pulls up and people tell him to get in.
the guy says "No, the good lord will save me"
The water keeps rising and he's up on the roof. A helicopter flies over and lowers a rescue worker on a rope.
The guy says "No, the good lord will save me"
So, the waters keep rising and the guy is swept away and dies, and goes to meet his judgment.
There he asked God...Why Lord, Why, Why didn't you save me.
The Lord says "I TRIED THREE TIMES!"

"Eight people are confirmed dead, including at least two children "

Well Darwin 2 (assuming that the nooze isn't counting sexually active teenagers as children for the sake of crocodile tears), time will tell about the other 6(9)...

I guess if they couldn't stoop to that, they wouldn't be bastards.  Nobody deserves to die in a flash flood.  Except those commenters, of course...

Up to 9 dead, 1 missing.

I'm predicting a safety, because safety was definitely missing here.

Fark has stricter rules about hating, and personal attacks, than most news and blog sites.

Compared to most sites Farkers might as well have top hats and monocles.

How does Darwin play in this? No one was doing anything stupid. The place was a regular swimming spot.

I like how the comment section on an article about multiple flash flood deaths devolved so quickly into people accusing each other of incest.

Generally speaking, locals know which roads and rivers tend to get flooded at the onset of rain, and know what places to avoid if the weather calls for rain. At least here in New Mexico.
 
2017-07-16 09:05:19 PM  
Sad?  Far from it.  This is hilarious!
 
2017-07-16 09:06:23 PM  
It makes sense. You're already wet, what's a flood going to do? It's like having to get out of the pool when it's raining.
 
2017-07-16 09:07:01 PM  
My boss 20 years ago was telling me about hiking in a Colorado canyon when a flash flood warning was issued so they started climbing the side to get as high as they could before the water came through and as they did so they watched people try and run down the canyon before a wall of water swept them all away.  Water does not fark around and moves a lot faster than you think.

These are foxnews.com commentors. They make us in this thread look like elder farking statesmen. Just check the link and see for yourself.

For example:
Just a perv either way......and obama legacy.
The world was much better when they were closet folks......But the good news is obama let enough muslims in to toss them all from roofs 1 at a time

Uh, in case you missed it, this is Fark, where snark reigns supreme.  The whole point of this place is that it is generally not all that nice of a place.  Maybe you are a bit too sensitive to be posting here, eh?

Beautiful spot, terrible soundtrack.
If anyone wants to watch this video and see how beautiful it is, and also how dangerous it could become in a flash flood, I highly recommend MUTING before pressing play.

I was going to be snarky when I the first article I say said this.  "A rural fire chief says at least four people were found dead and about a dozen more are missing after flash flooding poured over a popular swimming area inside the Tonto National Forest in central Arizona." but decided against it.

Flash flood warnings had been issued some time earlier. OTOH, if they were out of cell phone range and didn't have a weather radio, their only warning would have been the sound of the oncoming flood.

On the gripping hand, it's been monsoon season for weeks. Not the best time to be swimming in flash-flood country.

IIRC, this years Monsoon Season has been a bit "flaky" at best.  All the more reason to be *Situationally Aware*
