Abstract:

This report presents an assessment of the historical significance of cold-water immersion as a threat to the lives of recreational boaters. The analysis is based on a detailed review of the fatal accident history of a selected typical year 1974. A demographic analysis of cold-related fatalities is presented to establish the nature of high-rick populations. This information is intended to be useful in directing programs aimed at reducing cold-related fatalities among recreational boaters. Author
