The lil ol’ Muskegon River is trending on Facebook today as 3 city girls from Muskegon Heights spent the whole night stranded after tubing on Tuesday.
The girls thought the river went in a circle, going on a conversation with someone where apparently there was a miscommunication, or perhaps they ran into a prankster. (Like someone who might tell tourists about the Porcupine Festival or Hot Air Balloon Rides on Drummond Island, or that the petting zoo closed when the coyotes had eaten all the animals.)
Possibly, someone had advised them of a hairpin turn where they would have to portage with their tubes a short distance in order to get back to starting point.
We may never know what was said.
According to mLive, though, they “hugged trees” and screamed for help all night.
The young women were, of course, terrified, and my heart goes out to them. But who could help but partake in the fodder of comments that developed in the aftermath?
