Kayaker saved just before swimming over a 60 foot waterfall

- Wednesday August 21, 2013

Wow, this is intense. Check out this video where Demshitz's Dave Fusilli saves Bren Orton were paddling Hamma Hamma Falls on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. It is a tricky 20 ft waterfall that leads into a 50-60 footer. Bren ended up getting washed up against an undercut and swimming after making it down the 20 footer. Thing is, he was literally a few feet away from being washed over the 60 footer. Dave Fusilli eddies out on the right and performs a great throw with the safety rope to pull Bren to safety. Bren's feet were literally danging over the edge of the falls. Good safety work guys!
