Are they Crazy? Swimming in Devil's Pool at Victoria Falls

I've seen videos of people swimming in Devil's Pool when there isn't much water at Victoria Falls but in this video, the water flow looks pretty strong.

"The naturally formed Devil's Pool rests right on the edge of the Zambian side of Victoria Falls. A rock wall on the edge of the falls slows down the current and prevents brave swimmers from tumbling over the edge. To really drive the point home, let me remind you that Victoria Falls stretches an astounding 5,600 feet in width and spills over a 360-foot-high cliff.

Also, please note: it's only safe to swim in the pool when the water levels are low (September–December)."
