But all is not lost as help comes from on high
Next time you find yourself jetboating up the Tauherenikau River in New Zealand, be careful when spinning around as you could snap the steering nozzle off.

The day did start to look up though with the method of salvaging the submerged boat.
Watch the video below to see what happened.
