I watched a lady and two teen girls which I assume were her daughters launch their two kayaks, get in and paddle off while the mother got back into her truck and drove off, probably back to their campsite.
The kayaks were sit inside so they could have the PFD inside the hull, but they never put them on if they were.
I see this more often than not on our local lakes.
It's sad when there is a drowning, but people just don't think it will happen to them.
Just one more cast!
