Wrong place, wrong time

An Ellicott woman and her husband were killed over the weekend when a 250 square-foot rock slab crushed their boat on Lake Powell. Park Rangers say 64-year-old Donald Simmons and his wife, 59-year-old Mary Simmons were out on the lake Friday afternoon when a rock slab gave way and fell on their boat.
Mary Simmons body was recovered on Friday shortly after the accident, but her husband is still missing. Divers have spent the past four days looking for his body. The water near the search is 150 feet deep and underwater trees have been getting in the way of search efforts.

Or maybe their number was just up. Which would make it right place, right time for them. But what a way to go, huh? It's like those stories you hear about someone being killed by a stray bullet falling from the sky. Just walking down the street, and bzzzt zip. Hole in the head. We'll all go soon enough. I wish them well on the journey.
