The spillway, which drops straight down more than 200 feet, is known as the Glory Hole. It routes excess water from the lake down an 8-foot-wide pipe.
Authorities said witnesses reported seeing Schwalek swimming toward the spillway at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
Yeah! Let's swim out to a nightmarish swirling hole in the lake/space/time continuum. That's the ticket!
The woman dropped out of sight after gripping the edge of the hole for about 20 minutes, witnesses said. There has never been a documented case of anyone else falling through the Glory Hole, said Don Burbey of the Solano Irrigation District.
Gripping the edge for 20 minutes? Nobody tried to save her? I guess it's just another example of cleansing the gene pool of those with less than optimum judgement.
