News & Stories: Lives Saved by PFD’s

Here you will find stories and articles about life jackets (PFD’s=Personal Flotation Devices).

In some cases, the story is thankfully a positive outcome: one or more lives saved.

However, in all too many cases, the story is tragic: one or more lives lost.

While impossible to aggregate all of the life jacket related stories in a single place, I nonetheless hope that the stories shared herein prove effective inspiring people to wear properly fitted life jackets suitable for the water activity that they are participating in.
