01 AFTER THE ACCIDENT ON CHRISTMAS EVE Photo byKolb Brothers The Defiance was overturned in a rapid above. Ellsworth Kolb, so weak from the battle inthe ice-cold rapid that hecould nolonger swim, but kept afloat by life-preservers, was carried close to this point and crawled out, 20 feet aboveanother rapid. Lauzon swam outfrom theoppo site shore and saved the boat. The Edith was smashed while trying to follow the Defiance. Emery Kolb climbed thecliff ontheleft, but failed to see his brother, and thought he had drowned. Lauzon signaled him back as he was returning tohis smashed boat. Rocks here arecovered with a thin coating of ice (see text, page 179).
