Brutal line!
And I agree, live bait definatly should have been attempted, although by the time they got it set up, he would probably have been out, but still, watching and pointing, not a good rescue technique

Please note that my reply makes less sense now that Paul has changed the title and content of his original post.  My post was in response to his original text.

Keegan was stuck in the hole underneath the pourover for the entire time after the green boat went over.

The countdown timer was how long he was under water for.

Whether you paddle off the river under your own power or not ... you have to make the right decisions about the lines you take.

I don't think anyone in that group of paddlers had done a river rescue course ... I was surprised that no one did a live bait jump in to grab Keegan and the boat.

Luckily the little bugger is a great paddler otherwise it could have turned out bad for a beginner.

Being stuck in a hole is no fun whether your in your boat or not  ... been there done that a few times and it is scary to say the least.

So the worst that can happen, if you take a river for granted, is you paddle out of the rapid, in your boat, OK, and under your own power? Maybe I missed something.
