I almost lost my six-year-old son this past weekend. He went to play on the delta at the mouth of Windermere Creek. Much of this sediment that has washed down is mud, and he sunk to his chest in the mud and got stuck and panicked the more he moved, the deeper he sank.
When I tried to save him, I, too, got stuck. This creek has caused so much damage to our lake and foreshore. It is frightening and poses safety issues. I wouldnt have had to worry about mud engulfing my children a few years ago. This situation is only going to get worse.
