One of our customers has informed us that a member of crew slipped on a pontoon walkway and fell into the water. His lifejacket inflated and out came the Lifesaver that had been fitted. One of the rescuers was able to grab the Lifesaver and hold the man against the strong current running through the marina, while the others hauled him under his shoulders and by the harness of his lifejacket back onto the dock.

This particular brand of european lifejacket has not yet been tested for conformity with MOB Lifesavers but our customer was confident that the jacket would work perfectly well with a Lifesaver fitted and it did. He was also adamant that he had to have Lifesavers fitted to his jackets and it certainly paid off.

Let us know if you have had similar experiences.
