Rescuer Walks to Victim With New Life-Saving Device in 1932

Reducing danger and increasing speed of movement through the water arc the features of a new German life-saving device which permitted the rescuer to walk to the drowning person in 1932.

Hinged fins on feet permit wearer to walk through water in new life saving suit. Folded position shown at the right.

Giving the wearer the aspect of a winged mercury, the device consists of a waterproof suit with a life belt around the middle, as illustrated in the accompanying photo.

On the feet are worn a pair of hinged fins which automatically lock when the foot is moved backward for propulsion and fold up when the foot moves forward for a new stroke. Arm paddles also aid propulsion.
