SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The family of a man who drowned in Willard Bay is offering the use of free life jackets.

Brigham Bradley, 32, wasn’t wearing a life jacket when he died in August 2013 after his jet ski broke down out on the water.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/1ld6B7P) Bradley’s family put up two stands at Willard Bay Monday offering people the use of the life jackets for the day. Each stand holds about 15 jackets, purchased through grants and donation.

There is also a stand at Utah Lake, though the life jackets have gone missing from that stand.

The Hale Family Life Jacket Foundation has put up seven stands in Idaho. The foundation was started by friends of the Bradley family who also lost a relative to drowning.
