but I was wondering exactly how do people manage to drown even with a PFD on? I've heard people in this forum state that in the winter, wearing just a PFD just makes it easier for people to find your body (death due to hypothermia), but what exactly are the factors that would cause one to drown in spite of having a lifejacket? The only thing I could think of was a really strong undercurrent... anything else?

Thanks in advance.
