Another nightmare scenario....

...the rescuer, was recording her trip when she came across a man in the water.

He'd been there for at least 45 minutes.

She told him to hold on to her kayak as she headed to shore, calling out, "Good job. Remember to breathe."

But the pair ran into trouble when the man tried to lie across her kayak. The boat turned over, and she was dumped into the water as well.

She managed to flag down another boat after the incident, and the pair was brought to shore.

What would you have done? 

In that situation, I would never have let him grab my kayak.  I always have line with me, carabiners and such that I would have used to tow him to shore.  He had a PFD on, which is good.  Grab my kayak and you’ll be bonked on the noggin by a paddle until you let go.  Can’t be a help if we’re both struggling to survive... 

Plus, the rescuer needs a better camera...  or learn to use better settings.  Bloody people and their shitty quality footage.  No excuse in this day and age to make me sit through anything worse than 1080p!
