In the 80s I did some white water canoeing, these sort of weirs came up in basic training.
We were told that the only way out was to dive to the bottom and then you might get washed out.
This is a risky strategy given the number of old cars, bike frames, shopping trolleys etc, but better than dieing in the back wash.
Fortunately never had to try it as we avoided this sort of Weir.

Just heard a public service announcement on the radio, asking Supers to take their phone with them, advised waterproof holders are available.
