Rescue For River Runners

A bit of a re-blog here from Unsponsored on river rescue techniques. There is a brilliant series of videos on throw-bagging, live-baiting, mechanical advantage and much more to be found over at:

I’m impressed that someone has taken the time to put these videos together for the benefit of others. Be aware though that some of the techniques may be slightly different to what is taught in the UK (for example, we teach never to use the chest harness to tow boats). If in doubt, get yourself on a BCU or Rescue 3 course.
