What could the upstream boaters done to help? Any boats that went into the trees could have caused more victims.
With the fast current and loud water noises it’s almost impossible to communicate in that situation. My priority would have been to stabilize the situation and provide downstream safety for the swimmers which would be getting everyone to eddy out.
From what I saw the person in the trees was in no immediate danger so there was time to calmly assess the situation and come up with a responsible plan.
