Has a life rift ever been successfully deployed in the event of an air accident involving a commercial aircraft?
For the purposes of this question a "life raft" is an inflatable device designed specifically and only to be used as a life raft and normally stored inside the aircraft, not some multi-purpose or makeshift device.
Criteria for inclusion:
- A commercial jet flight after 1945
- Carrying paying passengers
- Minimum aircraft capacity 50 people, although fewer may have been on-board at the time
- Raft stored inside the aircraft prior to deployment
- Raft designed for this purpose, i.e. not just something a passenger was randomly carrying
- The raft actually worked as intended, i.e. people were able to float on the water in it and not drown
In short I'm asking about the rafts often seen stored away on commercial flights. The raft may have been used on rivers or the ocean.
