Just a guess...but if his jacket remains intact and is zipped up he might find it very difficult to breath due to the pressure on his torso from the inflated PFD. That was something we were very careful not to do when making a parachute jump into water...get out of the harness before inflating the PFD.

Doesn't seem like a wise thing to do.
