Will to Live, Life Jackets: Boaters Survive 28 hours, Sharks

Saved by the Jacket

Two anglers whose boat sank over the weekend in the Gulf of Mexico clung to an improvised float and fought off sharks while the third swam what felt like miles to search for help.

“These peoples’ will to survive and their life jackets is what saved their lives,” said Lt. Katy Caraway, a helicopter co-pilot who rescued one of the men, who was suffering from hypothermia, and then flew all three to a New Orleans hospital.
