Trauma Tuesday: Columbus Whitewater Edition

Columbus Whitewater Park, Chattahoochee River, Columbus, Ga.

The About section on this video’s YouTube page says it was posted on May 26, but I’d be willing to bet this is footage from May 25, the first day the new, man-made whitewater rafting course running through uptown Columbus, Ga. on the Chattahoochee River. Also evident by the amount of spectators that can be seen on the far bank and heard in the background – mainly going “oh, no.” This is river carnage of the first degree with novices in the fore of the boats, and guides in the back who I doubt have had much time to prep for the first day on the water – which appears to be raging. The 2.5 mile project took 13 years and $24.4 million to make and just look how these people abuse it.

It’s only funny because no one was hurt, so don’t feel bad about LOL-ing.
