Ponder Cement life jackets

Comment: I've heard a rumor that students (possibly from MIT) got ISO 9000
certification for a process to manufacture cement life jackets.

I've done a google search on cement (or concrete) and life jackets (or
life preservers) and found a lot of references to getting certification
for a process to manufacture cement life jackets, but nothing that says it
actually was ever done.

Has it ever actually happened, or is this another example of a cautionary
tale grown to urban legend proportions?
