Lifebuoy with Freshwater

Dehydration is a serious threat to the well-being of air or sea disaster survivors, who may need to spend long periods in the ocean awaiting rescue. The Lifebuoy With Freshwater keeps them afloat but also filters seawater to provide pure drinking water.
Shipping accidents or air disasters over the ocean can lead to people spending long periods in the water with a Lifebuoy With Freshwater while awaiting rescue. Dehydration is a major cause for concern in such situations. The lifebuoy can turn seawater into freshwater and potentially save lives.
