Wow, I hope the guy has a full recovery and don't envy him for his injuries but there's just so much in that video that amazes me and continues to my mistrust of anything the media reports.
"River Expedition" - I usually think of expeditions as being more than a day trip beside a road...
"They were thrown into an unexpectedly powerful and violent current" - Let's see, peak runoff, record high flows, and you can see the creek from the road all the way to the put-in. If these guys weren't expecting powerful water, I don't know how I could ever tell them what to expect if they fall out of the boat.
"He joins us exclusively this morning..." - Are the other news outlets elbowing each other for a chance to interview a guy that fell out of a raft at high water and had to go to the hospital?
"...along with fellow survivors..." and "... its a tale I'm glad you all lived to tell us about..." - Were all the others on this routine 1/2 day trip killed?
The only thing unusual about this is that it was caught from a POV. But there's nothing unusual about a news station picking it up and milking a routine story. William Randolph Hurst is alive and well....
