The school suspended cheerleader activities, and now the 7 girls have been indicted in the incident. One of the victims, 15 year old Courtney Nickell, recently spoke out about about the incident.
"I could hear some of the other members yelling, 'I can't swim. I can't swim. Stop. Please don't push me in.' Our hands were still bound together and our blindfolds were still on, which terrified me even more. I didn't know if I was going to come back up and live or if I was not going to make it."

The girls are being charged with hazing, and to be honest, it's a shame that they're not being charged with something worse than just a simple misdemeanor. As someone who was a combat swimming instructor with the US Marine Corps, I know that this sort of thing is not only dangerous, it can turn deadly in a matter of seconds. This isn't just an innocent prank, and shouldn't be treated as such. Attempted homicide sounds right, if you ask me.
