What people are saying


Engineering Safety

An experienced whitewater kayaker, Isaac Ludwig had made 10 trips down the Narrows of the Green rapids in North Carolina. His eleventh trip on April 1, 2007, was nearly his last.

When he got to the Gorilla, a 15-foot waterfall that lands on a shallow rock shelf, things started to go terribly wrong. He’s convinced that his WRSI helmet -- the result of a collaboration between the Center and other partners -- saved him in a harrowing fall in which he hit his head on a rock.
