NEW ORLEANS (May 28, 2007) -- New England Patriots player Marquise Hill was reported missing following a jetski accident on Lake Pontchartrain, where U.S. Coast Guard rescue crews were searching for him.

I hope he is found alive and well

I also think jet ski use is banned by most NFL contracts, just like motorcycles.

A body believed to be New England Patriots player Marquise Hill was found by searchers today, a day after he was reported missing following a jetski accident on Lake Pontchartrain.

"The family will have to make positive identification," Capt. Brian Clark of the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Department said, "But the body we found was that of Mr. Marquise Hill." The body was discovered about a quarter-mile from where Hill and a female companion were involved in the accident, Clark said.

Rest in peace, Marquise. You're a hero.

The woman said that Marquise saved her life. He fought the currents and dragged the woman to a buoy before being swept away as he got there. The woman watched him fight the forces. He just must have finally succumbed to exhaustion once she got on the buoy.

Woman? Marquise saved your life at the expense of his. Live a good life and remember Marquise Hill.

Quote:
The woman Marquise Hill was with on a jet ski before he was lost in Lake Pontchartrain in Louisiana says Hill saved her life. A strong current reportedly knocked the two off their watercrafts and the 24-year-old Hill helped the woman get to a buoy before drifting away. Neither was wearing a life preserver. Hill's family and friends continue to hold out hope that he'll be found. Source: Boston Globe
Source: Rotoworld.com and search for Hill.

Quote:
A call came in around 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Atkeson said. The woman, whose identity was not available Monday morning, was rescued and sent to Tulane Medical Center where she told them Hill had tried to keep her calm even as the two were drifting away from each other.

Neither Hill nor the woman wore a life preserver, Atkeson said.

"It's so important to have a life jacket and a signaling device," Atkeson said. "One keeps you afloat and the other helps us find you."

Elias said Hill has spent much of his time since Hurricane Katrina helping family members rebuild their homes.

I just noticed this one and my stomach is now churning. A true hero = Marquise Hill.

It's really amazing how things can turn tragic so quickly. When we're young, we think that we're invincible. Life vests would have probably saved both of them.
Too bad.
