The guy getting out of the boat is carrying a can... which he sets on the ground and spills. There's at least three guys on the boat with cans. One of the girls who falls out of the boat is carrying a wine bottle... which she makes it to land before she does. And the other girl, after being pulled out of the water, stumbles backwards for no apparent reason and falls back into the water.

I think it's safe to say there was a fair bit of alcohol involved.

If the guy filming had kept the camera still, none of this would have happened!

Quite! It's crying out for video stabilisation though.

Those people at least have the satisfaction that this event was caught on video.

I'm going to pin it on the two guys stood up on the left side. They can't get out for ages and if they were sat then this would not have happened.

Most problems can be solved with either a stiff drink, a bowel movement, or a bullet.

It appears this was the first time any of them had been in a boat. None seemed to grasp the non-stationary nature of the thing.

Physics, Physics, and lest I forget, Physics!

I see why school systems have taken to promoting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields programs.

On reflection, I think the blame rests on the three two women who all tried to get out at the same time.

No! One of those women didn't even try to get out! Just got dumped out.

She might not have been very stable due to the wine, but she knows her priorities (wine saved, smartphone wet).

The other woman, yeah, she is not so clever.

Yes! I think she was up on her feet, ready to make her move. She wouldn't have been thrown out if she was sat down. That's why she reached for the bank instead of for the boat.

Ok, she was on her feet, fair enough, but so were most of them. But she isn't the root cause.

In fact, I'm going to blame the dude who gets out.

The equal and opposite reaction to him powering out of the boat is to push that side of the boat down, tipping it, which makes all the idiots who are stood up fall to the right. White cardigan backs into brown cardigan, who is dumped out.

And the suicide blonde, obviously, as well.

The original, in HD instead of 240p:



Clearly the dude's fault; he stands up and exits/pushes the boat without warning. Also just before the boat reaches the quay he nearly makes it tip over on the other side by moving to the middle.

I can't believe you all are debating whose fault this was. Clearly it's a group effort. Lesson #1 for small boats: One person gets out at a time, everybody else either sits still or holds the dock to keep the boat in place. In this case we had three people piling out at once, nobody holding the dock...they're all to blame.

Yeah, it's a lot more obvious in this version that he pushes the boat away from the side.
