PWC Rescue Technique (critique)
The driving was too fast and the recovery itself was also too fast. Operators should not make hard turns after a victim has been placed on the rescue board, as they may lack sufficient strength of physical ability to hold onto the grab handles with the effects of centrifugal force.
A real victim will not understand how to swing their body on a pendulum to the rescue board, nor what to grab onto, and will most likely be too exhausted to help themselves entirely. This is how we train in the K38 Way, safe operations with the patient(s) needs foremast at all times while underway, and not to run aground too hard, as their head may hit the stern decking seat.
