I don't know about the Manchester canal but I've fell in a few and let me tell you unless there is a specific reason (ie. panic, people of small
stature etc.) it's virtually impossible to drown in a canal, except the locks. Nearly all canal dimensions are, the boat run, in the middle, average 5
feet deep, rising at the banks to around 3 feet deep.
Any reasonable adult just needs to stand up, so these cases are very unusual. What do the autopsies show? Surely if they were all drunk this would
show up and the police would have an explanation?
Who knows? Date rape drug, knocked out, rolled into water. I would think if there are no external injuries and they're all young adults, I would
suggest that they were comatose when they were put into the canal. If they were out of it they could not fight for survival and they would be easier
