Safe Guard Buoy Lets Non-Swimmers Save Drowning People

It’s not uncommon for a person who doesn’t know how to swim to come across a drowning person, which is why designers have invented the Safe Guard buoy to help with this situation. Designed to automatically inflate upon contact with water, the Safe Guard buoy is a convenient alternative to wasting time running back for help when assistance could be provided immediately.

Shortly after being tossed in the water, the life-saving ring will inflate with gas after it is tugged on by the drowning individual. After the drowning person places the ring over themselves, the person on shore can start to reel them in with the string attached to the buoy. This solution not only provides immediate assistance to those in need, but also lowers the risk of having to run and get help as well.
