Well, I remember almost drowning one time when I was a kid. I was with my grandparents and my mom in their boat and it capsized, my grandma drowned. I was originally told that Karl had saved me, but my mom told me a few years back that it was some anonymous person. Karl actually swam around trying to find a "book" he had lost. This could possibly be the journal? I'm not sure, but considering he saved that book instead of his wife is a good indication. It was that important to him. After that event, we stopped hearing from him and he became a recluse.
