c. Straddle the casualty's hips, facing the casualty's head.

2-15. CRADLE DROP DRAG
The cradle drop drag is used to move a conscious or unconscious casualty a
short distance. It is commonly used to move a casualty down steps or away from a life-
threatening situation. The following steps are used to perform the cradle drop drag.
a. Position the casualty on his back (paragraph 2-4).
b. Kneel at the casualty's head, slide your hands (palms up) under his
shoulders, and grasp the clothing under his armpits (figure 2-16 A).
c. Rise to one knee with the casualty in a semi-sitting position (figure 2-16 B).
Support the casualty's head by resting it against your arm or by bringing your elbows
together and supporting the head on your forearms.
d. Rise to a stooped position and walk backward (figure 2-16 C), dragging the
casualty. If you go down steps or a short drop, support the casualty's head and
shoulders and let his hips and legs drop from step to step (figure 2-16 D).
