A tug boat pulling a barge at Skookumchuck Narrows suddenly capsizes trapping one man inside the boat for 10 minutes. Kayaker Dave Fusilli of Team Demshitz http://www.demshitz.com paddles out his Pyranha kayak http://www.pyranha.com in an attempt to save the man from the wreckage. Luckily no one was killed and a nearby tug pulled the barge and submerged tug to safety before the tide went out and the rapids of Skookumchuck became dangerous.
