Tied-hands crawling The tied-hands crawl may be used to drag an unconscious causality for short distance. It is particularly useful when you must crawl below a low structure, but it is the least desirable because the causality's head is not supported
place the causality face up, cross the casualty's wrist and tie them together.
kneel astride the casualty and lift the arms over your head so that the casualty’s wrists are at the back of your neck.
when you crawl forward, raise your shoulders high enough so that the casualty’s head will not bump against the deck.
Crawling Techniques Use a triangular bandage , a torn shirt, etc to tie the casualty’s hands together and place them around your neck. This way you can move person much heavier then yourself.
