The River Reuss (flows out of lake Luzern and eventually merges with the Rhine River) flows over the Nadelwehr (Needle Dam). The actual dam is currently lying flat on the river bottom. When raised via the chain it diverts the river into a channel in the background. The river is running at a pretty good clip, so if you fell in, by the time someone threw the life ring to you, you would be well downstream (and that water is cold).
