Life jackets are being credited with being life savers six times over, after an incident on the Moose River near Moosonee late Sunday afternoon.

OPP say a boat started taking on water in rough conditions on the river.  By the time they arrived, it was almost completely underwater.

But the six people on board – including three children between the ages of two and 14 — were unhurt.  They were all wearing life jackets.
