My Dad always told me that the most dangerous thing we do is just drive on the streets and highways. I think he is right, even after watching this video clip. We did some canoeing once with fast water and he had us exit and portage around. We sat on the rocks and watched canoe after canoe after canoe wreck and spilling people out. My Dad told me to never get between a rock and a canoe because you'd get trapped. We saw metal canoes bend around rocks, but thankfully no one was hurt and only property damage. I was very glad my Dad knew about where to get us out early and know our skill level. This video clip of the guy sucked under was so emotionally powerful... and so glad he was okay in the end. WOW!

Drive safe! That's where most of us are at risk day to day.

I got a little too comfortable the other day and went out alone in rough waters with no life jacket. I got pinned in a spillway, then once i finally got my leg free and my head above water i shot out of the spillway and bounced off a lot of rocks.

Luckily I didn't get knocked out and made it to shore, but it was definitely a learning experience. I could've very easily been a nominee in this year's Darwin Awards.

experience kayaker here: everybody says "don't kayak alone" - but kayaking an easy class 2 is a whole heck of a lot safer than trying to do that rapid with a team of experts

nuff said: I'll continue to boat solo, but pick my spots very carefully - after all - I can exit the boat (even if my roll fails) and I make sure that if I do swim, it is an easy safe swim

again - I do that by carefully selecting what sections of what rivers and at what levels to run

kayaking can be as safe as taking a bath or driving a car - or it can be as dangerous as playing with a bunch of crocks in a swamp - its all up to what you choose to run
RickyMillar - 4 years ago
It's really down to the paddler. Some people will make it down class 4-5 with less chance of screwing up than someone else on 2-3. But they are generally totally different standards, a "class 2 paddler" might instinctively lean away from undercuts and pins and kill themselves on a class 3 river, while people like those in this video are extremely experienced in class 5 boating, and with that generaly comes a lot of safety experience. Yes people die, but for these guys it is fairly rare. and i bet if you asked them they would agree its worth the lifestyle.

Until you have spent time involved in stuff like this its super easy to underestimate the amount of saftey that is already set by just having a reliable crew with you.

2:36 first guy to him tosses him a rope. But guy in kayak is already holding another rope in his left hand. This rope is strung from opposite side of River and appears to be secured to guy in kayak. Where did this come from? After he resurfaces he his pulled to far side of River by this rope still secured to him.
phoenixamaranth - 4 years ago
Arch Stanton if you listen to video, one guy already set up safety down river and had thrown him the rope you see him holding. What we see in video is second guy to throw rope.

Uncomfortable situations can cause people to laugh, doesn't mean it wasn't incredibly serious. On another note, they filmed that after he was rescued, so he was probably feeling a lot of relief and excitement when his friend came out okay.

My dad and his friends went rafting on one of the most dangerous rapids in America (atleast most dangerous for a place they take tourists and customers) and he said it was nothing but adrenaline pumping the whole way, scary as shit. And two hours prior to them going out, someone got thrown off and got their leg caught on a rock under a rapid and drowned. They didn’t find the body until AFTER my dad and his group went through.

I almost died in the exact thing... different place. It was in the Kern River in California. 18 people died in the exact sieve I was getting sucked into and the Search and Rescue team told me that the sieve was 15 feet deep... I fought for my life and my cousins helped pull me out... The man that died three weeks before me had his family trying to pull him out, but the water was too much... His body came back up in bits weeks later.

I've been rafting on class 2's and 3's for a while... I also do flat water kayaking. However, i'm about to take on a class 3 river with a kayak, behind the rafting groups... I'm only 14 and have no clue on what to do if I flip or get caught in a rapid/rocks while flipped.
Any tips from experienced kayakers?
Xilva Skeng
Xilva Skeng - 4 years ago
Modest One yeah the main tip is don't try to save your kayak. If you flip and need to release but your kayak is going to go if you do, ffs release and let t go. Seen so many people try to save their kayaks and almost drown in the process!

I was in my kayak I'm a guide for noc in North Carolina and we were going down a huge rapid I told everyone to go the amateur way the right but one kid in a ducky decided that wasn't fun he went left of course he flipped so I was in a etty waiting for him to swim down he didn't show up but since it was so strong I couldn't go forward it took 3 hours to retrieve his body he got pinned in a giant hole what I saw scared me his body was pure white and face purple and I feel so bad to this day thinking he died because of me

when i went to a local camp to stay for 2 weeks i got to learn kayaking and rockclimbing and how to portage, camping stuff like that. I was only 9 or 10 probaly at the time and i saw people kayaking with skirts on and flipping over and pushing themselves back up. So i thought i could do it to (very dumb of me) so i went into a kayak a couple days later when we got to kayak again at camp and tried flipping over and never could flip myself back. So i just pulled off my skirt and swimmed out. I kept doing this until i flipped over and the skirt wouldnt come off, it was stuck and i couldnt get it off and people kept seeing me flip over so they didnt really suspect anything. I was stuck under until i completely ran out of breath I started to panic and kept trying to scream causing me take in alot of water,i was like this for what felt like forever and i was so close to drowning it gives me chills just thinking about, i luckly remembered that hitting on the top of the kayak acted as a distress signal, our teacher luckly was on the side that you could see my hand and jumped in. i was so close to dieing ill never forget it

i'm just wondering why a small self held supplied Air respirator has not been invented((or maybe it has, and i haven't heard or seen one idk)) for these situations/kayakers. something that can stand heavy water flow, "easy to put on" in such a panic state and if so on a backpack or upper arm.
Dawson Reynier
Dawson Reynier - 5 years ago
There has been one designed actually. It was used for the movie "The Grand Inga Project" about paddling a river in the Congo. Unfortunately it took a lot of tinkering and was more designed for when paddlers got sucked down in whirlpools. The issue with the sieve is often there is not enough room where the boater is trapped to move an arm up to find the tube and catch a breath :/

I'd go back & watch where the video cuts. It's totally possible the editor took that out of context to heighten the drama.

Video cuts to the interview on the word "die" and we can't be sure how the rest of it was sliced and diced.

Probably didn't take into account you're heart rate is more than double that while sitting at your computer. You're also tense, adrenaline is pumping and you begin to panic as you're straining for the surface; using up even more oxygen. A 2 minute breath hold while resting can easily be transferred to 15 seconds when in a situation like this.

crazy. something similar but not as serious or life threatening happened to me in a class IV rapid on the middle fork American River once when our raft got caught literally between a rock and a hard place. We were tipped sideways-trapped for about 10 minutes and had to be roped upright & out of harms way by half a dozen people. Scared the daylights out of everyone in the raft, including our guide. The after-run beers never tasted so good. Be careful out there.

The world is poisoned with people that put others down and people that discriminate and reject people for who they are! The world is not about judging people on how many followers they have on instagram ir how big their snapchat score is, the world is about accepting people for who they are black or white it doesn't matter everyone is equal. I'm tired of waking up in the morning and hearing about terrorist attacks and people killing themselves because of bullying i. Sick and tired of it!

I'm a little older, I learned to paddle in the late 1980's as a river guide in WV on the New, Cheat and Gauly as well as the Blackwater with the Ocoee and Chatooga thrown in for good measure. Moved to the coast and surf kayaked until 2005 when degenerative disk disease blew my back out. I miss it!

The brothers that I've lost were Will Hagood; he died from a pin on the Lower Toulumne in 1999 and Paul Horner; he was pinned on the Oyacachi River in Ecuador in 2002.

cs pants
cs pants - 6 years ago
No worries, I'm not bothered by your asking. I assume you spend time on rivers and want to know all that you can, and that's a good thing. Your understanding of a sieve sounds correct to me--it can be formed of a number of types of materials. However, a sieve can also be formed with an undercut on the side of the river as is the case in the video above. The big difference from a safety standpoint is that a pure undercut would mostly flush you out if you got swept under, while a sieve would have material that could easily trap you. In a boulder jumble like what we see above, it's safe to assume that there are multiple smaller boulders and porous passages below the large rock that the kayaker is being pulled under. We can tell by the topography of the surrounding rock. If it was a pure undercut we would probably just see a large rock wall on that side of the river, but instead we see a multitude of large boulders piled atop one another, therefore, we can assume it's a sieve. Personally, since I can't know for sure, I would rather treat the obstacle as if it were a sieve out of an abundance of caution.
Kay Zee
Kay Zee - 6 years ago
I get that they're different; that's why I asked. My understanding is that a sieve is a group of obstructions like brush, logs or a group of rock that catches traps you as in a net. What I see is a classic undercut since there's no pillow of foam in front of the boulder. I also see the kayak being pulled under the boulder instead of the water piling up over it like a classic sieve. No contention or confrontation intended but can you explain why it's a sieve and not an undercut?

Sivs have no respect for person. It doesn't matter how good of a kayaker you are. Surviving a siv is not something paddlers can train for. A siv will suck people under large rocks and flush people back out at its own discretion. If a log or anything large is stuck in a siv it will obstruct the current flow and the chance a person will smoothly flush through is much lower. This guy got lucky.

This made my pulse race a bit!  I kayaked on lots of great rives around the world for over 20 years - Costa Rica, Canada, European Alps, Norway, America and Nepal.  Awesome fun but you have to pay lots of respect to the river Gods!  Worst personal experience - trapped behind a rock after a really bad swim on the Marsyandi in Nepal.  Worst accident to watch was a multiple swim of kayakers and flipped gear raft in gorge section lower Karnali, Nepal in high water levels.  All big water epics but the one that scared me the most was rescuing two German kids trapped under a fallen tree on a shitty little grade 2 river in Bavaria.  Ironically big fast water is safer as it tends to flush you out and down.   Fallen trees, foot entrapment, pinned kayaks, weirs and sieves are the killers.

Kayak safety tip:  Attach a snorkel mouthpiece to a 3ft piece of tygon tube.  Insert the tube under your spray skirt and have mouthpiece dangling near your mouth.  You can breathe out of your boat when you are upside down, or lift it into the air if you get pinned against a rock.

one of those emergency scuba tanks slipped in your vest may work in an emergency. but maybe instead of a snorkel an actual larger tank of air could be slipped in the stern. same principle but removes the vacuum issue. Also leaves a few more options in an emergency.
cs pants
cs pants - 6 years ago
This is interesting, and may be useful for a quick breath or two if you didn't get a breath before getting trapped, but you have to pop your spray skirt to get out of the boat and then the boat instantly fills up with water. This guy was trying to get out of his boat the whole time...he was pinned by the pressure of the water though. I would guess that his spray skirt had already imploded, at least partially, and that the boat was probably filled with water in the first few seconds. He was getting plenty of air, but he was getting pulled down and needed to get out. I don't think a snorkel would have helped him in the least bit. He was losing the fight and he had to go under to get out. It's a very scary decision to make, but he made the right one. If you fight too long the river takes all your strength, then you can't get out and you die. You must realize when fighting the river is futile. Sometimes your only chance is to be calm to save oxygen in your blood, and then go under and try to get out. You have to hope the river lets you go and you can find an escape route; this uncertainty is why it's such a hard decision to make--both have to happen or you don't make it.
colorado judiciary

since you also exhale into the hull 'each successive pump' is irrelevant.  in any event I encourage interested kayakers to try this in a pool session.  from my experience the flexibility of the spray skirt allows for at least one lung fill and exhale, repeat...
Romany1111 - 6 years ago
+gardogg65 Right. Any sea kayaker with an internal pump knows this. As that deck sucks in with each successive pump, the vacuum gets stronger; way beyond the reach of a pair of lungs.

It is better than nothing in a pin/broach situation, and you also have the option of simply holding the open end up in the air.
sqwid - 6 years ago
I talked to a guy last weekend who told me you take tiny short breaths when using the tube down skirt method and the rise and fall of the spray skirt defines the amount of air you can breath in and out and you just keep breathing in and out in little tiny bursts.  You never empty or fill your lungs fully but rather you breath in and out say 30-50% of your total lung capacity... I'm gonna try it again now that I know it isn't about full breaths but rather little in and out bursts!  I feel it will work now but just will not be very satisfying oxygen-wise...
colorado judiciary
colorado judiciary - 6 years ago
I was at a failed rescue for a broached kayaker, he had one of those tubes and the rescuers told him to toss it away.  A few minutes later his head slipped about 6 inches under the water.  With one of these clipped to a rescue line at least the boater has an option.

Kayak safety tip: don't get stuck in a rock
sqwid - 7 years ago
+colorado judiciary
The style of the spray skirt is 100% irrelevant.  Another example since you aren't understanding is this: stick a glass bottle in your mouth and suck - NO air will come out since no air can go in to displace the air leaving the bottle.  If you were able to suck hard enough to remove air, the glass bottle would implode and shatter.  The same principle applies to an inverted kayak.  No air can be sucked out of it period.  This is science.  FACT, not opinion.  I literally tested it out and end of debate...

+gardogg65 My spay skirt is the spongy kind.  For anyone interested; make snorkel apparatus as described.  Go to pool for roll practice.  Post results.
sqwid - 7 years ago
+colorado judiciary I used a rubber 3/8" plumbing tube. I attached it to a snorkel mouthpiece. I tucked it down the waistband of my sprayskirt. I flipped upside down in a lake. I tried to breath in and just felt my
sprayskirt imploding with the force of my inhalation. The problem is
the vacuum effect of a solid hulled boat. There is no air intake so you
cannot breathe air OUT of the boat. Just like if you put a 2 liter of
pop in your mouth and suck, the 2-liter plastic jug will implode. The
vacuum pulls in on the walls since there is no way for air to displace
the volume of air you are sucking out. If you poke a hole in the
2-liter and suck, you are good. Same applies to kayak. If you suck in
while under water, the kayak would have to implode for you to get any
air out of it because you cannot suck all the air out of it without
creating a vacuum which would crush the boat. Therefore, the only way
it would work is if you had an air intake via a hole in the bottom of
the kayak.
colorado judiciary
colorado judiciary - 7 years ago
+gardogg65 Curious result.  I tested it with the scientist who invented the high altitude bag; and he was breathing out of his hull for 2 minutes before he decided to flip back up.  I don't know what you mean by the tube collapses.  We used tygon tube...it didn't collapse.  I don't know how to reply to the 'hole in the boat' idea.
sqwid - 7 years ago
+colorado judiciary you actually cannot breath out of your boat when it is upside down because it forms a vacuum so your boat would have to crush in order to allow air to exit the boat and enter your lunges. I tried it. What WILL happen is you will feel your spray skirt suck into the boat a bit and touch your quadriceps. You get about 1/16th of a single breath of air before the tube collapses and no more air will be sucked through. If you had a hole in the bottom of your boat this would work. But then the boat would not float. Lifting it into the air when pinned I did not test though... that could be useful.

+deborah wood Rush Sturges is one of the most famous paddlers in the world. Besides, everything you have said is tripe. These people do not paddle for notoriety, nor do they have a duty to avoid personal risk in order to spare their relatives grief. Mortality rates at the top end of paddling are actually quite low, certainly lower than skiing and mountaineering. In well over 20 years of paddling I've only known three people who have died doing it. You say that you kayak, yet you cannot distinguish between a skilled activity with attendant risks and a 'suicidal' act? I would suggest that you aren't that keen and should probably quit for your own emotional wellbeing. In case you are unaware, 100% of non-paddlers die.
Olle - 6 years ago
+deborah wood For some people, the idea of living goes beyond staying alive, fitting in and eliminating self induced risks for the purpose of postponing your family members' grief in case of your death. For these people life is about dreaming big, appreciating being here - right now, experiencing the rush of trusting your instincts as you balance the line of contrast between life and death.
I believe these people many times end up saving their own lives by pursuing these dreams, rather than becoming suicidal from the dull life that society has intended to mold us into.

Im glad he's ok, A few years ago I was a raft guide on a class 1 to 5 river here in WV for an outfitter company. I was guiding about 14 people in duckies that day along with 4 rafts that were in the group. We got down to a set of wave train class 2-3 rapids that were about 75 yards long by about 40 or so yards wide. I grew up on this river an its taken many lives through out the years.. I will never forget that day..I paddled ahead in my kayak to set safety on this big boulder river left that sloped down into the river. I was out in front of the rock helping some folks go through this 10 foot wide gap between 2 rocks and I heard a scream and turned around, this girl flipped out of here duckie and got sucked uder that big rock, I tried to get a line to her but it was to late even though I was 20 feet from the other side where she went under the rock. One of our senior guides and a few other hooked a rope on the guide, he jumpep in and got sucked under to, about 10 seconds go by and he tugged on the rope, we yanked him ou with the girl in his arms..She had drown, she was purple in the face and the whole works. Luckily we were all trained well cuz so we started CPR ,after about a minutes she started coughing up water and was alive. It scared me to death, but we reacted properly ans saved her life..now ive been paddling this river for 14 years but that's no match for the forces of nature

I see that you're incident happened on a class 2-3. A couple of months ago I was on a class 2-3 on the Mokelumne river in California. We'd been running a 5 mile stretch over and over all day and I've been running rivers all my life. I let myself get cocky. Foolishly I decided to take off my shirt, meaning I had to remove my PFD. In that moment of distraction over I went and the next thing I knew I was wrapped around a tree trunk or thick branch underwater with the current pulling my legs around the bottom and my upper body around the top. I knew I was about to drown. The situation was exactly what I always tell people is one of the worst case scenarios. I heard my paddle shatter underwater. After 3-4 seconds, for some reason, the current shifted for a moment and slid me off the end of the branch and I managed to surface. Even when I reached the shore in 18" of water, the strength of the current took most of my strength to deal with.
The main point is that both these incidents happened in class 2-3, a relatively easy rapid to navigate and not to scary looking. It only takes a moment for things to get out of hand. When on the river, always be vigilant, always know your surroundings and limitations, never remove your PFD and never, ever underestimate the forces of nature.

I agree completely. I've never done any white water stuff, but I fish the Missouri river regularly and have been out there in floods, and to be perfectly honest it scares the shit out of me. I've seen a very buoyant tree that was probably 80 feet long with roots sticking 6 feet above the water floating along, and then out of nowhere get sucked under. It reappeared a few minutes later a couple hundred yards down stream. Water is no joke.

imho, until you spend some time on fast water or experience a flood or so, you dont really appreciate the 'respect' water commands.

+Zach Thorn Was it the Gauley River in WV? My first time ever rafting was on the Upper Gauley 4 years ago. Our raft flipped over on Pillow Rock. I can't imagine you guys who do that on a regular basis for a living, it's very strenuous.

Yeah me too, everytime I paddle past that boulder on Wind rapid on The Cheat River I think about  that horrible experience. That rapid section is about 120 yards or so long and the boulder is on river left.

Luck... that the water had eroded the underside of the rock to be smooth enough to spit him out.

It was all staged for dramatic effect. Did you really think they would spend all that money on a helicopter to get some boring video that has been done over and over. In the next episode they go to Scotland and one of them gets eaten by the Lockness monster. All staged of course!!

Friends had nuttin to do with helping him. Actually they reduced his chances by encouraging him to exhaust himself struggling to hold that piece a chit plastic against the current. He finally wized up and let the frickin plastic go.

ActionGirafe. water pressure didnt just spit him out. under that rock was the snallest oppening that was pretty wide but super super short. he phisicly had to pull himself inch by inch under that tight ass rock. its a lucjy and amazing story
ActionGirafe - 5 years ago
Yeah he went under that rock, his friends couldn't do shit. He was really lucky that the water pressure spit him out of underneath the rock.
