Shredding the Schuylkill is not recommended

6ABC Action News’ Ali Gorman reported from Conshohocken today. Part of the report was an interview with Tyler James, the 17-year-old who is all over social media riding a skimboard in the floodwaters (over 70,000 have watched video of it on TikTok).

In the interview, James states, “I was trying to make it to the shore but couldn’t, so I was like I’ll just shred the Schuylkill.”

Gorman then interviews a physician who advises against entering floodwaters.
