Young James Farrow, 17, fished Snetterton Lakes, near Attleborough, Norfolk on Saturday and was overjoyed when at about 5pm he caught a 22lb carp, a personal best fish.
His parents spoke to James on his mobile before going to bed that night, as they always did when he was night fishing, and he was fine and still talking about his great catch. The next morning his father went to look for him when he didnt answer his phone. He found James, a diabetic, lying at the edge of the water.

Paramedics failed to revive him and he was pronounced dead at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
An inquest in Norwich yesterday was told that James died from drowning after falling into the lake because he developed hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) as a result of his diabetes.

A terrible tragedy,and i'm sure others will want to join in wishing the deepest of condolences to his family & friends.

Peter.

Peter,

As was stated a tragedy, but why, oh why, was a diabetic fishing on his own, or at least why were other people not told of his condition.

Knowing friends who are diabetic, they have told me that they always tell people who are near them what to do in an emergency. Just to be on the safe side.

Unfortunately hindsight is no good in a lot of situations.

but let this be a notice to others if you suffer any form of risk from diabetis, epelepsy, even some heart problems ect ask a friend to accompany you on your fishing trip. I have known this to happen
once before in similar circumstance & i know that any of us would only be to willing to offer our company if needed

tight lines.
