WJAR's coverage of the death of Richard Jean-Georges, the Rhode Island police officer who drowned this week in a riptide off the beach of Jaco, Costa Rica. Includes an interview with the mother of Lynda Nield, another Rhode Islander who drowned off Jaco last year. Richard's drowning follows that of Sam Karadsheh, who drowned off Jaco last month and at least 8 others who have drowned in Costa Rica's riptides since Sam's death.
Please share widely -- these deaths were absolutely preventable.
