It is sad. However, there is no "strong current" or "hydraulic" at the bottom of Laurel Falls; especially at its current low level. It is highly unlikely that the body was pinned underneath the supposed shelf by the alleged strong current.

Also, the 2nd body was seen floating in the pool by a helicopter on the next day? That doesn't make a lot of sense. Weren't there any rescue personell at the pool? Wouldn't they have seen the body floating?

As a witness at the scene, I was fairly unimpressed with the rescue.
