Yikes! This is why when I kayak or canoe I wear my life vest even if I look stupid. If you get hit on the head you can't grab for a floatation device. But if you're wearing it, it can keep your head above water until you come to.

I am a good swimmer, but always wore a life jacket when canoeing. That river is much more dangerous than it appears - when we capsized once in small rapids on it, I honestly think I would've drowned without it - and it wasn't even that deep! It was so swift, you panic and don't think of trying to just stand up.
