But there's no way you could have accounted for the possibility of the stranger and his negligence.
Your story is a great example of how negligence doesn't just affect the negligent person.
I'd say that it's always dangerous approaching a panicking capsized paddler to the point where they can reach you. Is it always possible to avoid doing so? Probably not.
EDIT: I shoulda said "all things considering, you done good!"
