Go on that's unfair, you'd be fine as long as they didn't offer to help recover the boat

It's very difficult to spot the Heros before they rescue you.

Last week someone (lady with mental health problems) from our small village hopped off the bridge into the river which was in full spate after heavy rains. I'd have said a no-hope situation but even as she broke the surface, an unheroic looking bloke leapt from the bank and amazingly managed to rescue her. Who was he? We don't know because he said something about "having to get going" and vanished, soaking, into the growing crowd. Medal that man!

Looking over the membership of our nearby Volunteer Mountain Rescue teams, Volunteer Coast & Cliff teams, Volunteer CG Delta crews and the all Volunteer RNLI station crews, I can think of quite a few highly unlikely heros amongst them and yet as teams, they have rescued or recovered a great many people over the years. People who I guess were glad to see them arriving...

I'll say it again: It's very difficult to spot the Heros before they rescue you. Easy afterwards.

Bit of Respect, please

Clearly they are not scared of showing an error made during training, gadzooks - they must be human!

As per other posters the instructor should have halted the botched approach it was obvious early on, even to me! no fault on the students part as they were there to learn.

You'd be surprised what normal people can do, even more surprised when they work in teams.

Is there an instructor on the boat or are they both students? Perhaps they are neither? Maybe it's a vid demonstrating what not to do.

Successful but potentially expensive - there are better ways to learn.

Whilst criticising without knowing the situation is wrong there is a BUT - I do see where SSD is coming from!

Just because someone volunteers does not resolve them of being competent in what they do. There are full time RNLI crews who I would not ever let come alongside me, St. John/Red Cross staff I would not let near anyone I cared about.

BUT (another one!) there are full time paramedics/doctors who I would not let touch a relative and I would rather put their care/rescue in the hands of dedicated, trained and caring first aiders/SJAB/Red Cross/Indi rescue services.

Unfortunately when the sh1t hits the fan we don't always have the choice or the knowledge of the rescuer to make that choice.

The vast majority of medical , nursing and care staff are dedicated and do a fantastic job ,
but looking at the statistics of court cases and murder trials of recent years there does seem to be more murderers within in the medical proffession than any other .

Looks to me like he thought he was driving an arctic. No way you need hard-lock to hard-lock, and then he over-cooked it and slapped it in forward! Easy done I suppose.

This isn't a RIB, but you get the idea.
