There he was a 17 year old boy going to jump into freezing water. That he could possible die in and stay there for ever after he jumped a lifeboat picked him up and saved him when he got on the bout they were packed like sardines as the stern was up in the air nobody moved for fear to fall over.

This section of the river seems violent because of the excerpt, “Now he was on the bridge, hunched over on the bicycle, pedaling steadily. He could see the dark, churning water far below” (163).
