Ohio State drains Mirror Lake in effort to prevent jump

Quote:
Mirror Lake has been drained in an effort to discourage the “Mirror Lake jump,” according to an email from Ohio State’s Department of Public Safety.

“The safety of our campus community is always our top priority. Out of an abundance of caution and with the university’s focus on safety at top of mind, we are sharing that Mirror Lake has been temporarily drained,” said the email, which was co-signed by Jay Kasey, senior vice president of the Office of Administration and Planning, and Dr. Javaune Adams-Gaston, senior vice president of the Office of Student Life.

The email reminded students that the Undergraduate Student Government called for an end to the jump, which traditionally occurred on the Tuesday before the Ohio State v. Michigan football game, three years prior.

One of those, "wish you could ask the kid that died..." Can ANYONE imagine the kid would want this as his legacy?


It was a tragedy, a risk taken. Family shouldn't have gotten a dime. A memorial maybe. But not a dime. I feel a little cruel even writing it but I don't see any normal risk to this. We have people polar bear jumping into the maumee river for criminies sake. We going to sue the fish, if someone dies? Sue the county because the people jump in off public land? And what happens when the students start jumping into that dry lake and pile onto each other? It's more dangerous drained than it is full. They'll need to erect barriers, the next lawsuit is already planned.
