Here are 2 my wife took when everyone was talking/joking:

In this one, my BIL is in the middle with the swamped canoe, the guy who swam to shore to the left of him (middle person), and the guy we had to help is even with his buddy in the kayak who's taking photo/video:

And here you can see I'm sorta between the 2 men in the water (yellow kayak), the 3rd of their party in the blue kayak also very near, BIL's kayak on shore, and things were still peachy:

But that's it as my wife went to help us pull things ashore.

I'm still amazed at just how fast it went from "ha ha, we dumped and are swimming, this is funny" to "he's drowning" ~ it certainly was NOT in slow-motion, very much real time and yet like watching a TV/movie where someone drowns ~ I guess they got that part of "realism" down pretty good.
