well, I just watched the clip. Honestly, the least they could have done was recorded what raging water at least sounds like and dubbed it over the scene where the rescuer is standing in an eddy. 9News is so weak.
On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.
