Kayaker Defies Death by Escaping Deadly Keeper Hole

It’s every whitewater kayaker’s nightmare: to watch your friend’s boat plunge under a rapid and reemerge without its occupant. That situation played out for Jamie Crowley and his crew when they tried to run a first descent of the unruly Clark’s Fork of the Yellowstone River back in the 1980s. It’s one of the wildest and most dangerous rivers in the country, flanked by sheer walls of granite. One of their kayakers Mike Beres accidentally went backwards over a waterfall and disappeared. After 13 minutes passed with no sight of him, his friends assumed the worst when his body reappeared in the water. But then they noticed his arms and legs were moving. Beres had miraculously survived.

Listen as the OG group of kayakers recounts the harrowing day, and how Beres managed to keep himself alive. If their story has hooked you, then we’ve got great news. It’s part of a much bigger documentary called Our Local Epic, which explores how the Clark’s Fork became Wyoming’s first wild and scenic river. Rendezvous River Sports is releasing the full film on April 25th, so be sure to do a movie night with this one.

Check out the trailer for the full film below:
