Twitch continues to give viewers incredible, unscripted, and sometimes downright frightening moments, thanks to its slew of IRL streamers – one of which had a near-death experience on camera.

Polish Twitch streamer Patryk ‘pajalockk’ Zawadzki was broadcasting his excursion in a canoe when he came upon a freighter as he paddled down a river.

While he appeared to make an attempt at paddling around the boat, his canoe ended up hitting its aft starboard quarter, leading the smaller craft into a dangerous current that overturned the canoe – appearing to get sucked up underneath the freighter due to the strength of the current.

TACLUDA, rgbstock.comSmall freighter boats like this one can cause dangerous currents, as one IRL Twitch streamer discovered during a live broadcast.

The scene erupted in a moment of brief panic as the streamer seemed to be caught beneath the freighter, his friends rushing to the riverbank to get a better look at the situation.

The streamer emerged from the river mere seconds later, clinging to the boat’s rear in an attempt to keep his head above water – likely a huge relief to his panicked compatriots.

While the original VOD has been deleted and the exact location of the scene cannot be verified, one Reddit commenter claimed that the debacle went down in Detroit’s St. Claire river – a dangerous spot for divers and boaters, due to currents caused by freighters just like the craft seen in the video.

“…It’s roughly a third of a mile wide, with a few narrow shipping channels for freighters, occasionally as large as 800 – 1,000 feet, “ the commenter explained. “No way in hell I’d ever dive there – aside from the draft leaving only a few feet of room between the ship and the riverbed, the water displacement from such large ships in narrow channels causes dangerous currents.”

This wouldn’t be the first time an IRL streamer has documented a dangerous situation, by far; in fact, YouTube streamer ‘Furry Potato Live’ was involved in a violent altercation with a security guard in early February, after deciding to stream outside of a synagogue in Los Angeles, California.

After questioning the streamer why he and his friend were streaming outside the synagogue, the guard requested that the pair stop moving – but the two continued to pace back and forth, prompting the guard to draw his gun and fire on the streamer, wounding him in the leg.

While the guard was later arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon, no further information has been released concerning the Polish streamer’s wellbeing after nearly drowning.

It’s not the easiest process, but we’ve put together this handy guide for you to make your mornings a little more exciting.

TikTok has fast become one of the most popular apps on the planet.

How to make a TikTok sound your alarm

If you want to make a TikTok sound your alarm, the first thing you’ll have to do is download the sound you want — but this can’t be done straight from the app.

Instead, you’ll have to head to a separate website, such as ttdown, and from there you’ll need to paste the URL of the TikTok you want to download a sound from, hit ‘GO’, and finish off by clicking “download audio file.”

From there the process is easy:

  1. Make sure you have downloaded the mp3 file of the sound.
  2. Listen to it — you’ll want to make sure it’s right!
  3. Import the file to your iTunes library, then into your iPhone’s saved music.
  4. Head to the clock app and search through the sounds available for your alarm.
  5. Underneath the ‘songs’ option, press ‘Pick a Song’ and find the sound you saved.
  6. Select it and you should be good to go in the morning!

Make sure to select ‘Download Audio File’ on ttdown.

Now, this opens up a whole new world of noises to be frustrated at in the morning, if the classic Radar sound just isn’t doing it for you anymore.

Whether it’s a song or something funny, loud, and annoying you need to get you up, this could be the best way to do it.
