I remember reading a story about these guys in Canada that inadvertently launched above a large waterfall (not sure which one but it was over 50). two abandoned the boat when they saw the fall approaching, one fell out, and one guy apparently stuck the landing. they had seen a canoe icon on the road atlas.

the other one is the couple that survived Potomac falls in a sit-on-top rental.

I have no judgment on the memory part. I don't know if you have kids but for me they seem to suck the brain cells right out.

The parts that didn't make the news story ( I couldn't find it again when I searched ) are the bits about the kayakers that warned them at the pullout above Otter Slide where they were getting ready.

Those were mad throw bag skills in my opinion. I've practiced a lot with mine and I'm not sure I could have made that throw even once and he did it 3 times.

The whole time I watched the video I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

Also, from the second video... it looks like even going left on the big rapid by the rock ends you in that hole below.

I couldn't believe when the dude on the one man fishing pontoon and then the tuber dropped in... crazy.
