    Deadly Kayak Accident Avoided

    As we watched from above, I had just started filming when I noticed the last kayak had a problem over the first falls.. It was empty and then she popped up in the river, the kayak went one way and she went another. As she moved swiftly through the water, it was obvious to myself and the crowd watching that she was stunned to say the least. As she went over some rapids, one of the river guides for Kosir's started yelling "Swim, swim, swim"..

    She made it to where he was positioned, the kayak continued down stream sinking many times along the way. She was out of breath, but looked like she was ok. This happened on the Menominee River in an area known as Piers Gorge in Michigan's upper peninsula on October 3, 2015 during a surprise marriage proposal I was filming.

    I did post a little longer video on youtube showing what happened to the kayak. You can see it here: https://youtu.be/ASbt7-PIl9A
