no. he and some woman were riding without life vests at night. must of hit something because they fell off at 9 PM last night and he saved her life while he got her to a buoy but when a ship spotted them..they tried to make a turn, by the time they did..Hill dissappeared into the dark and hasnt been seen since

reports say they found the jetski but not Marquise.

edit: report says a strong current knocked them off the jetski

It has been changed from a "rescue" mission to a "recovery" mission, that is never good. My thoughts are with his family.

Why the **** weren't they wearing life vests? Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb. Still though, I hope they find them.

Lt. Steve McManus of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said officials decided to focus on recovering Hill's body after witnesses saw him go under the water without resurfacing. Authorities are trying to determine with the help of family members Hill's exact location at the time he and a woman fell from the craft, McManus said.

Petty Officer Tom Atkeson said the Coast Guard has crews in a helicopter and boat searching the lake near the Industrial Canal. Wildlife and Fisheries also is participating in the effort with another boat.

A man and woman were reported falling into the water from a recreational craft about 9 p.m. Sunday. They apparently were heading to the Seabrook boat launch. The Orleans Levee Board Police said that a passing boat had briefly picked up the man, but he jumped back in the water to look for the woman.

The woman was rescued after a passerby heard someone calling for help. The woman had apparently grabbed onto a piling or other structure in the lake.
If he is gone, he went out a hero.

i've heard 2 different things.

1.) he jumped back into water like you posted

and

2.) He led her to a buoy and then he drifted away as the rescue boat was making a turn to save them

Gets a little stranger, here is an unrelated story from the exact same day:

Quote:
Man dies trying to save wife:
A man is dead after he tried to rescue his wife in Lake Pontchartrain. Authorities say the woman was riding a jet ski near the Mandeville Harbor. The woman fell off, and the man jumped in to save her. He drowned before he could get to his wife. Another boater rescued the woman.
This probably attributed to the various reports of the incident.

Just awful. I have a very strong feeling this is going to turn into a RIP Marquise Hill thread. :(

A Patriot dying on Memorial Day... what irony...

This is a strange and sad story. I hope he gets the recognition he deserves in the news as opposed to being a sidenote to a Mike vick story.

They found the body
im at a loss of words. i cant believe it. a young man who fulfilled his dreams of making it to NFL..a role model to the community. Why do bad things happen to the innocent..the good...the good people of the world.

a heroic effort by Marquise to save a fellow friend while risking his life. May god be with the friends..family..teammates and fans of Marquise Hill.

RIP
