First thing I thought of, too ... what happened to the boat? Did it capsize? Is that why the friend drown trying to get in the boat? And what was the orientation of the overturned tree? Was it laying down such that he was able to get on the trunk where he held the roots? would like to have a better sense of his situation without making assumptions.
