Shocking footage shows three men riding kayaks through raging river rapids during heavy rain in Costa Rica.

The unidentified men glided along the muddy deluge while concerned residents watched them from a nearby bridge in Heredia during a storm on July 24.

Resident Dany Arroyo Perez said: ‘They looked like rescuers because of the vest they were wearing but we were not sure. We hope they were safe.’

More than 300 people living in villages near bodies of water were evacuated to shelters after torrential rains battered the region causing rivers to swell and flash floods in nearby villages.
