Friends, if you plan on going on a boat, life jacket is very essential.

Life has no duplicate, we must do everything within our power to preserve it.

May the soul of the deceased rest in peace.

    Is there no law that boat operators should provide life jackets for their passengers? These people were passengers hiring the boats for use in doing their job so the owner and operator of the boat should be held responsible for that omission.please thorough investigation should be carried out about the condition of the boat and the expertise of the boat operator. This is very unfortunate and so so sad.
    RIP to the dead!
