From wakeboarding, never let go until you enter the water. She did great!

****** to that - hold on and you swing yourself under the boat and in the line of the prop ready to turn a the incident into a fatality. If you are on your way out throw yourself away from the vessel is the official line but I'll admit its a big ask to remember to do that in a situation like this. Criminal negligence to to put peeps unsecured up in the bow of a rib and then drive like a complete fool.

First I laughed like a drain but I agree holding on is going to put you into the prop. She was certain to fall out even if he only snapped the throttle shut as she was leaning back against the bow rope with her legs inboard. A sharp turn to port would have sent her over as well. She should have been inside the tubes braced both sides and with her centre of gravity low down. But then we wouldn't have had the arcing departure
