He rushes to the cliff and scrambles down the rocks. it takes him a long time to get down to the water, trying to keep up with the current at the same time. as he nears the waters edge he sees
Losing strength.

Struggling down the slope,
Theres not much hope.
I begin to try to ride the scree
But the rocks are tumbling all around me.

If I want john alive,
Ive got to ditch my fear - take a dive
While Ive still got my drive to survive.

Evel knievel you got nothing on me.
Here I go!
