casualty's knees, and secures his grip.
c. Once both bearers are prepared, the leader gives the command to lift the
casualty.
d. Both bearers rise together, lifting the casualty (figure 2-17 B).
e. Upon the command of the leader, both bearers walk forward.

2-19. TWO-MAN SUPPORT CARRY
The two-man support carry can be used to transport a casualty for a long
distance. The carry has two versions. The regular version (figure 2-18 A) is especially
useful when transporting a conscious casualty who can hop or walk with assistance.
The second version (figure 2-18 B) can be used when the casualty is taller than the
bearers and cannot walk.
a. The bearers kneel on each side of the casualty and face the same direction
as the casualty.
b. Each bearer grasps the wrist of the casualty's near arm with his far (outside)
hand.
