The arms carry (figure 2-6) is often used to move a casualty who cannot walk
(conscious or unconscious) for a short distance. The arms carry is performed using
the following steps. If the casualty is conscious, tell him what you are going to do.
a. Raise the casualty to a standing position using the procedures given in
paragraph 2-5.
b. Slide one of your arms under the casualty's near arm, behind his back, and
under his other arm.
c. Move to the casualty's side, bend down, and place your other arm behind
the casualty's knees.
d. Lift the casualty from the ground and stand erect.
e. Move forward, carrying the casualty high on your chest to lessen fatigue.
