What posseses you to venture into the Niagara River in icy conditions without proper gear? Their ignorance put the two rescuers and others in danger. Darwin Award nominees.
I agree...on a windy day like yesterday...in a canoe no less...not the smarted move for sure. Could understand it if they were kids but come on boys, your on the low side of forty! Glad you both are OK and alive to tell it!
