Ha! How can you pity the second boat? As DeepFrz stated, they were doing the same thing - trying to beat the bridge closing. But the 2nd boat did react well. It shouldn't matter if there was a bridge tender
or not. They could have hailed him/her.
On a side note, looks like a bridge design I haven't seen before. I'd like to know where it is. It appears the center of the span is hinged (can't see a gap) and the ends slide in and out to raise/lower.
