WootTootZoot : Next time, ask Mr Deity to transport you magically to Disneyland.

teogo : If only there was some way to be informed about what the weather might do and choose accordingly.

Caver461 : Wow - wild ride - glad you all survived. Personally, if it had begun raining while I was down there I would immediately be heading for a spot where the water would not get me. Was it your intention to situate yourselves under that waterfall to watch the flood from beneath?

Matt Williams : Irresponsibly climbs into canyon without research of dangerous flood inducing weather, even after realizing that it is raining very hard. Asks Jesus to protect them from the flash flood. Smart.

matycee : Seriously? Why people insist on giving up their rational minds, especially in a situation like this, to imaginary beings/dieties for protection is just truly astounding and just plain silly. Perhaps a quick look at a weather forecast was all that was necessary... This is an amazing bit of video however.

elk hunter : Intense. I am no expert canyoneer, but I do have some experience, including a few close calls (all my fault). Why would you rope deeper into a canyon during a rainstorm? And then have your buddies follow you even after you've seen the danger? I am glad everyone came out, and the video was awesome, but man you guys broke a lot of rules.

Gary Porter : And the tourists that come to town think we are ruining their vacation by telling them to stay out of the canyons if there is even a chance of rain, because dying wouldn't ruin the vacation at all right?

killerbeau95 : wat a bunch of loons.

Daniel Dunn : So lucky. Glad they made it! That rock saved their lives.

Kerri Hosick : and mother nature lay her hand over the wayward children saying, didnt your heavenly father tell you not to be stupid in life???

Dakota Belliston : Talk about lucky timing. Amazing how quick those floods come

David mendi : The atheists sure got triggered 😂😂

Jason Naparalla : I ran this canyon last month.  Amazing to see what a flash does  it.  In addition to th lower pools and small creek after the exit.

Harry 8642 : if Jesus was real, he wouldn't let this happen to you, let's be serious he is a fairytale...

UDT116 : Awesome.

Justyburger : Hedge of protection? A hedge is not very good. What about a wall or force field?

Chris Moore : The thing I find interesting is that so often you hear people praying for protection in a situation like this.  Shouldn't God be a little more proactive and protect them BEFORE the situation gets this out of hand?  

Greg Petliski : I can understand why they prayed. That is an incredible display of the power of nature.

Colin Marcus : Wow. I'm truly lucky not to be this stupid. They made literally every wrong decision possible in that situation.

Kristina Pike : "God keep us safe"...He should have given you brains instead.

Chas Sheppard : Great video guys, I’m so glad you’re open enough to share your mistakes so that others can learn from them 🤘

Wizdigo : What beautiful cinematography!! It's my dream to see the canyon/desert sides of the USA. God bless your souls!

Markee z : Its funny how everyone says there is no God but, when you are out of options and life seems hopeless your mind seems to naturally call out for your father. Almost like it was a built in. Like ,created that way. ;) How come people have to be convinced there is no God?

omfggoogle : Always take an umbrella when you leave the house.

sislau : I love that you guys prayed for protection. Way to keep your heads on straight, glad no one died, and good for you for remembering who's ultimately in charge!

Spicy Taco : So while rappelling(around the 0:18 mark) you had two ropes hanging off your anchor. Was the second rope another rappelling point for someone else, or did you use that rope to retrieve your main rope?

Amethyst : I'm guessing next time they checked the weather before they left...

R : Well that looked fun. :)

michaelduha : The Virgin river can be an asshat sometimes. Got to be careful.

jason bailey : That was great. That was the best book flash flood video I've ever seen.

pictureBigger : lol @0:55 they're warming up the car.  that's what's going on up there.

ReneeNme : Staged.

conservative satanist : hahahaha stupıds. while rain following and you are making crowd ,mudflash wıll start. even your jesus protect you.

Ray Love : This amazing. Thank the Lord you were safe.

pictureBigger : time to go home boys @0:33

michaelsimkin : Looks nice. I think, I'll go there.

Susan Mark : U guys r crazy ;)

Showdown : Next time.........use an U-boat.

James Hadfield : We call them Dingbats.

Khataroo : That was insane!

Happy Hartshornes : awesome

SupernalOne : interesting cultural shift - when I was this age, in the 70's, our feeling was not the "hoo-rah team cheer" sort of response, but more the "we have been through an enlightening experience" - and in any case, being aware of the weather upstream while in canyon country is always wisdom

Benjamin Baukol : fake

A B : Ain't mudslides going to give you a horrible death doing this?

Kendall Brown : Stay out of the canyons when there is a chance of rain. 

Doughdill1 : nothing will happen to us in the name of Jesus, now that its over lets get a beer  

Bryn : OTT Americans.. There's a surprise

Stephen Muth : On behalf of all US Americans, I would like to apologize for the clueless Godbots on display here.

Recalcitrantinfidel : Never forget to carry along the ice cold coors, hiker tip #14.

Ryan Hamblin : This is ridiculous to proclaim. To think that there are no real world consequences to a death in a national park, that affect the others who do participate in recreation activities in a smart manner, is flat out ignorant and stupid. Had they died, there would have been a laundry list of back lashes, most of which would affect how you are able to spend YOUR time in our Nation's Treasures.
