Did the Kishon merely carry off the bodies of the soldiers already slain?

Judges 5:21 (ESV)

21 The torrent Kishon swept them away, the ancient torrent, the torrent Kishon. March on, my soul, with might!

It seems more likely that the river itself destroyed the soldiers, pulling them to their death. This echoes what happened to Pharaoh’s armies at the Red Sea.
