We finally pieced together from various sources exactly WHAT caused the beautiful Glee actress to drown. First of all, we wonder WHY Naya Rivera chose to rent a boat and take her little boy out on the lake alone if she wasn’t experienced. When they were in the middle of the lake she turned the motor off but FAILED to drop the anchor. She made sure her son wore his life vest, but she did not wear hers when they hopped overboard. While they were swimming near the boat a strong current came along and the unanchored boat drifted away. Still in the water, she grabbed her son and swam as fast as she could to catch the swiftly moving boat. When she finally was able to grab the edge, she was SO exhausted that she used her last ounce of strength to push him onboard and she slipped into the water. It was all about the ANCHOR.

  1. Sad. Not everyone can rent a boat in B.C.
    you need a watercraft license the same as a motor vehicle.
    It should be the same there?
    Also there is no current in a lake so this excuse seems odd?

  2. A bit of wind can push the boat. But if it’s windy you’re not likely on the water in a small boat. Too much chop.

  3. Janet shouldn’t you let her rest in peace instead of trying to profit over her death with a fabricated story?

  4. Seriously you are such a cranky old coot. Your chronic misogynistic, backwards comments about women are so last century. Naya Rivera may have made a small mistake, and she paid with her life. She also managed to save her son in her last moments. This is not the time to sit there snarking and judging whether it was a good idea. Seriously, you’re unbelievable.

  5. Simple research will show that Naya grew up near this lake and had spent a lot of time there with family. It was one of her “special spots.” Very poor reporting, and victim shaming.
