Summary: What we've got here is a failure to communicate.
Alone on the Magus's deck late one night, Clark started shouting when something suddenly grabbed his ankle and started dragging him towards the river. "Something's got me! Shoot it! Shoot it!"
Whatever-it-was let go once A.J., the cameraman, and Brynildson, the security expert, arrived on deck, wielding a camera and automatic rifle respectively, both intending to shoot Clark's attacker in completely different ways.
Later that night, Clark mused that they should establish ahead of time what "shoot it" meant if they wanted to have any hope of surviving to make this documentary. As soon as he figured it out himself.
