Kayaker Pinned 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 River 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 Go Pro clip shows the rest of the party taking swift action to release Hardingham from the frightening situation. He was dislodged unhurt, but the footage should serve as a strong reminder of the dangers of taking to whitewater, and the importance of paddling with good friends and carrying proper safety gear.
