A young man fails committing suicide and his "rescue board" is falling in love with a girl who walks on the wild side. Is "rescue board" suitable in this sense?

Thanks

What is a rescue board? What are you trying to make it mean?

Well, he's desperate, very depressed, and grasps this possible love affair as a way to avoid another suicidal try. The text I'm trying to translate mentions (in Spanish) "tablón", (in English)" board", "plank" as a metaphorical way to express he finds in this kind of rubber ring (the love affair) a way to survive.
