I agree about the person who says they posted there that this paddler should learn to read river gauges. One look at the creek would provide all the info you need, whereas the gauge does little good until you familiarize yourself with its history.
I didn't see anything tied to the paddler's wrist. It looked to me like the paddle was tethered to the boat, though in very peculiar fashion, and not something that's wise in such conditions no matter how it's done.
I didn't mind the fact that it got posted here, other than it being the wrong forum. I bet somewhere out there, some newbie got an idea that this is "worse than it might look" as a result.
