Cold Water Facts

May be an image of text that says 'Cold Water Facts Cold water shock kills many people within the first minute. Muscle control is lost within 10 minutes even if you're a strong swimmer. Hypothermia takes approximately 1 hour to occur. Wearing a life jacket significantly increases your chances of survival. Worn. Nobody lackets Line Nerron PleaseWearit com'

After youve fallen into cold water thats 70°F (21°C) or less, its nearly impossible to put on a life jacket, or even hold onto one. Even Olympic swimmers cant swim long in cold water; in approximately 10-minutes you wont be able to move your arms or legs, so #PleaseWearIt.
