A study by the Red Cross (2010) found that 50% of boating accident deaths could have been prevented by wearing a personal flotation device (PFD), a life jacket.
Most boating accident deaths are the result of not wearing a personal flotation device, hypothermia and/or alcohol. Fully 80% of boating accident deaths were male and most boating accidents in Canada occur in fresh water with the leading cause of death due to traumatic head injuries.
More than one-third of drowning deaths in Canada are the result of a boating accident.
