The group’s organizers said they hope their demonstration will highlight how easy it would have been for first-responders to rescue Raymond Zack, 53, as he intentionally took his own life on Memorial Day.
“We want to put to rest all this nonsense,” said Liz Williams, a resident of Alameda. “We want to take one argument off the table and show that these guys were cowards.”
Williams said about 10 people will wade out into the water at the beach near the corner of Willow Avenue and Shoreline Drive at 9:30 a.m. The time and date were specifically chosen in order to approximate the weather and tide conditions when Zack died.
