TX Man Rescued After Trying Most Dangerous Rapid on Shoshone River on WalMart Raft

Luckily for a young man from West Texas, an expert kayaker from Cody and his friends were in the right place at the right time after the man’s raft flipped on one the Shoshone River’s worst section of rapids called the “Iron Curtain.”

“They ran the biggest rapid on the river during the highest water in a Walmart raft,” Kevin Kennedy told Cowboy State Daily on Monday.

Or rather, the young Texan and two friends attempted that foolhardy feat Sunday afternoon but their raft flipped, throwing them into the raging waters.

Luckily, they all made it out of the roiling rapids alive. The first two made it to shore almost immediately, but the third out-of-state rafter ended up stranded in a cave along the river.
