Life jackets could have saved drowned sailors

AN inquiry into the deaths of three men near Adrigole in 2010 has found that if they were wearing lifejackets at the time of the incident, the outcome would have been “significantly different”. Sixty two-year-old Wolfgang Schroder, and friends Wolfgang Schmidt and Richard Harmon drowned when they were forced to abandon their motor cruiser “Castaway” due to a fire while on a fishing trip.
