Wets #3

Wets #3
Once with the casualty, he places two lifting devices, known as a 'strops', one beneath the knees and the other under their arms. This brings him/her up in a modified foetal position, keeping the blood in the core of their body. The downwash created by the power of the S-92 can clearly be seen in this image.
