Do not attempt to carry a seriously injured person
by means of the pack-strap carry, especially if the
arms, spine, neck, or ribs are fractured.
Arm Carry: The technique for a one-person arm
carry is shown in figure 337. However, you should
never try to carry a person who is seriously injured with
this method. Unless considerably smaller than you are,
you will not be able to carry the casualty very far using
Blanket Drag: The blanket drag, shown in
figure 338, can be used to move a person who, due to
the severity of the injury, should not be lifted or carried
by one person alone. Place the casualty in the supine
position on a blanket and pull the blanket along the floor
or deck. Always pull the casualty head first, with the
head and shoulders slightly raised so that the head will
not bump against the deck.
