Unneeded chopper rescue

Maybe we should all paddle with a chopper following us. This rescue is really silly.

that is the biggest waste of money I have ever seen, they were on the rock the guy was holding onto, they could have just grabbed him, no reason for a helicopter

Hanging on to the rock? He is sitting in an eddy?? Why not reach over and grab the rock that the 2 people hopped from to get to him...Retards!

So how much did that cost with fuel and all...1k, 2k?
