My ex-husband and youngest daughter, who was about 10 at the time, were on an inflatable kayak aka duckie when we were floating the Salmon River. They hit the Time Zone rapid and were completely thrown off the duckie into the water. There was one of the large rafts coming down right after them, my daughter was in the perfect position to be sucked under the big raft and probably would have drowned. She was smart, she kicked off the rocks, went in front of the raft by a "c" hair and the people were able to pull her into the raft on the opposite side. Even the people in that boat thought she was going to be killed & couldn't believe how smart she was for kicking off the rocks like that. Our raft had gone first, so I got to watch in horror, the high possibility of my daughter being killed. What was my STUPID ex doing??? Sure wasn't trying to help his daughter, he was trying to get the paddles.
