I think insects breathe differently from us.
Therefore. The gills claim doesn't make sense either.
In the videos. You can clearly see air bubbles around the cricket. That would suggest it had gone into the river from the land.
Many water-dwelling insects have tracheal gills, layered extensions of their bodies that enable them to take more oxygen from the water than they could otherwise. These gills are most often located on the abdomen, but in some insects they're found in odd and unexpected places.
