  1. The Missouri river also has very strong currents just like the Mississippi river.

  2. It's so dangerous, and you need a life jacket. Now watch me and my friends get in the boat without one. Geniuses.

  3. Even with a life jacket it's not safe. Kudos to the engineers that channeled it over and over.

  4. i have always lived in omaha and have been told all my life never go in that water. and it is not that the water is moving at 7 mph's it is what is in the water? for one tree's ect if that hits you a damn life jacket won't do you no good.

  5. Don't go in and if you don't know how to swim you know how to swim it ain't bad just don't think you can swim up River like a fool swim down river away from trees and right to Shore and you'll be fine don't make it out worse than it is
