Canoe and Kayak magazine just put out a beautiful companion video to go with their feature story on kayaker Jason Craig. On March 20, 2011, the 17-year-old went over a 30-foot waterfall on California's Dry Creek, struck a rock, and shattered his pelvis, smashed his spine, and ruptured his dural sac. Fall and Rise: Jason's Story details his accident and recovery.

You can read reporter Joe Jackson's full story about Craig in Canoe and Kayak's June issue, on newsstands now.
