Sažetak
We report about a case series of kayaking fatalities occurred in Primorje-Gorski Kotar County from 2006-2013. Although kayaking fatalities are rather uncommon, in the three cases presented an interesting similarity emerged. All the kayakers suffered head injuries that probably led to unconsciousness and death by drowning although they were wearing they headgear. However, the headgear in question was a bicycle helmet in all three cases. The authors discuss the importance of wearing proper protective equipment and the difference between various types of sports helmets.
