Thought I would post this as it may have some useful information to anyone involved in wood or boat removal, as it's fairly rare to get pictures and video.
The video and photos are of a team of my friends removing the log that pinned Peter Thompson this past September on the Cheakamus river.
Note that the log was only under about 2 - 3 feet of (aerated) water at normal kayaking flows and no-one knew that it was there, even though it appears that the log has been there for several years. There have been hundreds of kayakers who have landed within feet of the log and even people who have swam in the nasty river left pocket. Peter was just the unlucky one who penciled straight in behind the log. RIP.
I apologize in advance for my monotone voice...
