Comedian Trevor Noah detailed his near-death experience while river rafting with friends Sizwe Dhlomo and Anele Mdoda in Costa Rica. 

“This years annual friend vacation had brought us to Costa Rica and for the first time we’d be white water river rafting. The guide told us it had just rained so the rapids would be class 3 to 4, which really excited us because we didn’t know what that actually meant,” he wrote.

Trevor explained that the first 20 minutes were easy but when the rapids began, things got a little out of control.

“I don’t really remember much except that one moment I was sitting in the boat and the next moment the boat was sitting on me. The one thing no one can really prepare you for us what it feels like to get sucked into a rapid. Your life jacket is almost as useless as a seatbelt in a plane crash because the rapid is so powerful it keeps sucking you back underneath like a giant water vacuum recirculating your body over and over. Up is down and down is up and all your ancestors voices are clearer than you’ve ever heard them,” he continued.

“I popped up first and grabbed onto the raft for dear life. Sizwe popped up second and like any good friend pulled himself up by pulling me back under the water. After what felt like an eternity Anele and her orange shoes finally resurfaced and all three of us were pulled to safety🙏🏽,” he added.
