According to World Health Organization(WHO), about 372,000 people die from unintentional drowning. There are only few lifeguards compare to swimmers, and it causes a decrease in physical strength.

"Life Tube" is a propeller attached rescue tube that helps life guards to move much faster in the water. It will reduce the amount of energy and time they spend to save drowning people in the ocean, pool, and other places.

“Swimming in the ocean is very hard even though you exercise everyday. I do not understand people jump in the pool, looking very confident, but they are not the swimmer they think they are.”

Gary (8 year experience)
“Saving drowning people is not the simple job. They tend to drag the lifeguards down to the water to breathe. We should wait until they get exhausted for both my life and their lives.”
