You gotta be one hell of a person to sit and record people drowning instead of calling for help. And you also gotta be a dumbass to jump into Niagara Falls to salvage a piece of fvcking drift wood.
Two men have drowned in the Niagara River – one who tried to retrieve a piece of driftwood, the other other who jumped in to save him from the lethal current.
Mario Guthrie, 29, climbed into the notoriously dangerous water at Broderick Park in Buffalo with the intention of collecting a large piece of wood.
When he began to struggle, 46-year-old Scott Vader dove in to help him.
Vader, however, was ultimately drowned along with the man he tried rescue when he failed keep both himself and Guthrie – who was desperately holding onto him – afloat.
A witness said Guthrie had a piece of rope tied to his wrist, with Vader holding the other end, but detached it because it was not long enough for him to reach the wood.
