Do Whitewater Paddlers Have Nine Lives? These Guys Do.

Capture of a whitewater kayaking video.

I could hardly finish watching this video of whitewater kayakers paddling a flood swollen river and I lost count after the 4th near drowning. The really scary thing is that the whole video seems to be shot on the same day with the same 4-5 guys.

Looks like they would do well to invest in some swift water rescue training to save them from being nominated for future a Darwin Award.

If you are at work, stop at the 5:30 mark as it gets NSFW at the end.
