As they crossed the Cold Well Dam on Sunday, kayakers from rafting and kayak club reflip rescued a distressed fisherman who had fallen from the boat. Rafting instructor Veselin Paunovski pulls him out of the water.
The fisherman is lucky but is an example of the need to use life jackets. Often neglected in Bulgaria on the high seas and in calm waters. The vest must be sufficiently buoyant and tight around the body.
