NewsLIFE JACKET SAVES SENIOR SHARE ON: Tim Rout, staff Tuesday, Jul. 5th, 2016Here’s why you wear a life jacket whenever you’re in the water. A man kayaking with another person was rescued in Lake Superior near Wawa after he ended up in the water. The 65-year- old had a life jacket on and OPP strongly believe the vest kept the man alive while rescue teams looked for him. The man was found along the shoreline of Lake Superior in good health by a search plane. The OPP is taking the opportunity to remind boaters and anglers to keep safety in mind when heading out on the water in northern Ontario.
