    Me and my friend go fishing down there a lot and we know a lot of other people do to and we all know how the man died so that morning we took the bus to go to the pond and we saw the man fishing and so we said hello and asked if he caught anything then he replied saying nope I just got here and then me and my friend down to where the guy was fishing and we where about 10 feet away from him and then he gets a fish on the line and then he says it’s a carp! it’s a carp!And the carp in the ponds are known to be 100s of pounds And then he hooks a belt thing around his hip and hooks his fishing rod to it so that he can reel the fish in and then he starts getting dragged in the pond and we talk him to unhook the belt and he couldn’t and so he started to go under water so me and my friend ran for help and when we came back he was gone and about 30 minutes of looking we couldn’t find him so then a biker came and told the police and that’s how it happened and I promise you If you drain out the ponds you will see a big fish with a a fishing rod hanging down his mouth
