Boating Accident Inspires Teen to Help Keep Swimmers Afloat

Saved by the Jacket

Jamison Wenc is taking his life-threatening experience and turning it into a life-saving idea. Wenc, 14, was aboard The Nino, a 63-foot Vicem sportfishing boat, on June 22 when it struck Goshen Reef in Waterford and quickly began to take on water. “Two of my siblings already had life jackets on and my grandmother had yelled to get the other life jackets,” Wenc said. “By the time a nearby boat had come, we were knee deep in water.” The boat sank shortly after the rescue. Wenc credits the life jackets with keeping him, his grandparents, John and Linda Antonino, and his three siblings safe.
