A kayaker became trapped with a torrent of water crashing down onto his head in a terrifying ordeal when he tried to follow his friends down a waterfall.

Footage recorded in San Luis Potosi, central Mexico, shows a group of five kayakers taking turns descending a small waterfall.

Things start out ok as four adventurers safely descend the drop, but the fifth member of their group runs into some problems.

As he starts to drop down the waterfall his boat gets caught on a rock behind the surface of the falling water.

Speaking after the terrifying incident, one of the kayakers said: ‘It was a fun day of rowing with friends like any other but at the moment we found a small jump that at first glance we did not think was so dangerous.

‘The problem was that behind the waterfall was a stone that completely blocked one of my friends and was trapped him giving us a few moments of suspense.'
