Please never come to lake piru to swim!! I lost my prima at an extremely young age while she went out for a swim when a sudden whirlpool dragged her 6 feet under. For years our family has been asking to have signs be put up warning visitors about these waters.

Others on the social media platform have this to say.

Some say the river has it in crocodile and alligator but we have no way to prove that.
