She was rafting with her family and the all swam Te Hoe and she got pinned under a rock.

The weren't with a commercial company but I guess they hired gear?
excuse my ignorance but is Te Hoe the section most class as the hardest on the grade 3 section where you have to make 3 moves around holes/stopper waves and you can scout the whole thing from river right?

I have paddled it twice for uni and I am trying to work out where she would have been held as a lot of our classmates swam that section and were totally fine. The flow is probably way lower right now though and I wonder what standard their BA's were.

This is one of those issues where nobody will ever have the answer to stop these tragedies happening just continual education.
