While one of the IKs would have been faster and more maneuveable, the raft might have been a more stable platform to reach the guy and perhaps even pull him in. Stay upstream from the Jeep and there is VERY little danger in that situation on the Dolores. I saw no rapids in the video. At least get out there and assess the possibilities and risk rather than stand around and jeer. Grand County SAR would spend the entire river season searching for bodies in the river if people were not willing to take some risk and rescue others in trouble. Rescues have been happening many times every day on The Daily stretch of the river above Moab during this season's very high water. We are most often never even called, though we do hear about some of them.
