Maine: Missing Kayaker Found Safe
Saved by the Jacket
According to watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Northern New England, a Maine Fisheries and Wildlife officer heard the audio clip of the mayday call on the news and recognized the kayaker’s voice.
“He absolutely did the right thing by researching the water temperature, recognizing the need to dress for the 49-degree water, and wear a life jacket, all of which contributed to keeping him safe once things went wrong.”
