Mark Allen, aged 18, drowned after jumping into a freezing reservoir on a hot day in June 2018. In May 2019 we watched whilst 3 throwlines were installed where he died. Mark could have possibly been saved if they were in place beforehand.

We, Mark’s family and friends, feel that the Government should require by law that throwlines are placed in designated places around every reservoir, Lake, canal etc.
Speaking to people who work in water safety (fire services etc) such throwlines have saved many lives.
We want to save lives and save people from going through the heartbreak and tragedy of losing someone they love to drowning.
