Saved me from Drowning.
During the summer of 1997 my family and I were floating the Buffalo river in Tennessee with our church group. We encountered some white water which capsized our canoe. My wife and son were OK, but I became pinned between the bottom of the canoe, and a small tree that had fallen into the river. Before I could free myself, another canoe from our party capsized and slammed into ours.
The force of the rushing water made it impossible for me to free myself, and the water was rushing over the two canoes and into my face, preventing me from being able to breathe. Some of the men from our group were trying to get me out, but the force of the river was too strong. That's when I remembered my Leatherman.
I managed to reach my Leatherman, open the saw blade, and start cutting into the branch that was pressing into my lower back. Once I had cut about halfway through the branch, the force of the river snapped it into, and freed me. If I had not had my Leatherman that day, I might not be here today. Thanks Leatherman!
