Looks like he narrowly escaped the heavy hand of Darwin..... much to the detriment of future generations.

I have always heard you should not try to cross floodwaters. Now I see why.

I won't judge. Being a 17 year old that probably has more balls than brains, I(or someone else here for that matter) may have tried the same thing. But still, poor decision making process none the less.

I'm just glad there were no GoPros around when I was young and indestructible. "Watch this idiot" would have been a good title for most of it.

It might as well had been a train he was trying to beat, it takes the same combination of ignorance and arrogance.

Would that camera have recorded the retrieval of his bloated corpse? That would be a good advertisement for the camera company, though I doubt they wold want to show what happens when their customers die doing something as ignorant and pointless as trying to cross a flooded road with obviously fast moving water.

That was a wake-up call for the rider and a poor choice for the company. In case no one has caught the irony in GoPro's slogan of "Go be a hero," heroes always die.
I staired a whole thru the breaks until I remembered the carb prolly has a problem to and I'm gonna hafta work on em.

Wouldn't have ? As the flood waters overwhelmed you and pulled you down , you would learn fear.

The more you post the more arrogant and ignorant you sound.
