This is the boat trip of my nightmares. If something like this happened in a Disney movie it would be magical.
In real life, though, this kind of thing is mother nature’s way of saying, “Get out of here!”
OK, maybe the fellows in this video weren’t quite as terrified as I was. They actually look like they’re having a good time!
Crazy as it may seem, this isn’t the first time a rare moment like this was captured on camera. The varsity rowing team at Washing University had a similar experience on Creve Coeur Lake in Missouri.
“My brother, nephews, and a friend go ‘fishing’ down a small drainage ditch sometime during the summer of ’10 near the flooded Spoon River in West Central Illinois, USA,” the description on the video says.
After a few minutes, something emerges from the water, quickly and aggressively. The critter has even got a ton of friends.
Here’s another funny tidbit, and this would totally be me in this scenario: One of the boys was so terrified that he hid the whole time.
“The funniest part is that Matthew, my youngest nephew, is curled up in the fetal position in the front of the boat the entire time, and you never see him!” The videographer wrote.
I am with you, Matthew!
