Miriam Helgestadisilav buckled under the pressure from her cousin Elly who cajoled her into grabbing a raft and heading out on the waterway.

Within minutes, a speed boat shot by on its way to the bar at McGillicuddy’s Landing near the campground where they were staying.

Miriam bobbled, toppled and sank. “I’ll get for this, Elly!” said Miriam as she slid under the water, emerging on the surface a tense few seconds later before walking back to shore.
