KAYAKER TRAPPED UNDERWATER SAVED BY FRIENDS’ QUICK REACTIONS

On Saturday the 2nd of November James Bradley, Pete Henderon, Carl Ross, Mark shackleton, Justin Gale, Mark Hardingham and Simon Morse were going for an afternoon paddle down the Lyn in Devon UK. In one of the drops Mark Hardingham is pushed offline and becomes ‘vertically pinned’ with his body trapped and his head held underwater by the current! This GoPro clip shows the reactions of his friends who pull him out of this sticky situation just in time. A great reminder for us all of the unpredictable nature of whitewater and the importance of always paddling with good friends and carrying safety gear.
