Missing kayaker in MN

After reading the No PFD Again thread, I wonder what the odds are that this guy wasn’t wearing a PFD?? The St. Croix River has strong currents, & there has been more than one death this year. I paddle this river on occasion, and it wouldn’t even occur to me to NOT wear my PFD. http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/22/missing-kayaker-taylors-falls/

sad situation and laws need to be changed about PFD on paddle craft.
