Dizzying moment young women's boat wobbles on edge of killer dam above 36-foot drop

Terrifying arial footage shows a boat of young women “lucky to be alive” after wobbling on the edge of a dam with a 36 ft drop below.

In the clip, filmed on Thursday (June 10) in east Austin’s Lady Bird Lake, the small blue vessel is nose over the rim of Longhorn Dam with its four passengers desperately hoping it doesn’t topple over.

Rescue officials appear to be recording the scene from a helicopter and replaying information over to another boat that is trying to rescue the stricken people.

The rescue boat is tied to the blue vessel with rope and it is slowly trying to reverse it away from the edge.
