First, My condolences to the family and friends of the 19 year old man who died, and speedy recovery to the other 3 that are in the hospital. Saturday before 5pm, the group tried to swim across Glacier Lake, with the temp of the water at 40 degrees. After the attempt, 2 left by ambulance, and 1 by Flight for Life on Saturday night. And one by coroner on Sunday.
Extremely unfortunate. The water is not much more suitable for dogs, as I have retrieved one (deceased) earlier this year. The crazy thing is people (kids) come up all the time and jump off the ledge above the lake, then swim back, and do it again.
Again, my condolences to the familes.

To bad, you could tell us if Darwin was right...
