Terrifying Video Of A Couple Of Bros Getting Ragdolled By A Waterfall Is A Great Reminder Of Why You Should Never Go Boating In The Winter

I don’t know why they decided to park their boat next to a waterfall in the middle of winter and I don’t care. Everyone got out safely and that’s all that matters. But I will say, that was one of the most frustrating videos I’ve ever seen in my life. Like the second it started you knew they were going to have to jump and they didn’t. I could only come up with three reasons as to why they held on so long. One is that they were scared, two is that they didn’t realize how much danger they were in, and three is that they decided they were going to go down with the ship with a la Captain Andrews in Titanic. And while I’d like to believe it was the latter, chances are it was a combination of the first two mixed with a little stupidity. I mean what did they think was going to happen? They parallel parked their boat next to a WATERFALL.

The craziest part is that once it started to fill up they just rode it out. Started blasting the fifty-horse in reverse like everything was going to be okay. It took the boat being ninety percent submerged for one of them to jump ship. Completely submerged for the other. And the last one never let go at all. He held onto it for a full underwater barrel roll (01:01) like he was in Wave Race 64. Here he is before:

It’s also worth noting that there was a platform literally three feet from bow. The first essentially bellyflopped onto dry land.

Maybe they just didn’t want to get in the water. Which would make sense considering it’s April. According to Jack Dawson cold water feels like, “a thousand knives stabbing you all over your body.” I don’t know. Videos like these are a great reminder of why you should never go boating in the winter. The risk of freezing to death in the water isn’t worth the reward of freezing to death above it. That’s just me. Luckily everyone involved was able to escaped relatively unscathed. Hopefully they think twice before parallel parking next to a water fall.
