Profiles of SC College Students Killed in Fire

13 posts in this topic


This really hits home for me. Three of the four students from Greenville attended High School with me, though they were a year younger.

My thoughts and prayers are with their families and friends.

As an alumni of both schools, its very sad when something like this happens. I fortunately didn't know anyone involved with that, but I know people who are connected. This is indeed a tragedy for the entire state.

It is disappointing that students partying in a beach house ended this way. Somehow I wonder however why this warrants so much more attention than say the 34 soldiers that died in Iraq last month.

List of Iraqi war dead from SC, listed by city. It amazes me these heros are completely neglected by the media, whilst we get several days news coverage on the event that happened at the beach house party.

Both are tragic but I guess the war deaths do not get as much coverage because you kind of expect SOMEBODY to die in battle. The soldiers know what they are getting into....I don't think the college students expected to go on vacation knowing that their was going to be a risk of dying in a horrible house fire...

It's kind of sad that we can't even have a thread about this kind of tragedy without people hijacking the thread or turning it into an argument.

This was a huge tragedy and I feel terrible for all the friends and family of the students killed. If events like this teach us anything, it's to enjoy the time we have with our loved ones and let people know that we care about them.

It would appear the ones that burned up in the house did so because they maybe have been too drunk to realize the place was on fire. A number of them had blood alcohol levels exceeding .2. (well beyond the legal definition of impared and on the way to alcohol poisoning)
