(3) Put your hands under his armpits, down his sides, and across his back,
(figure 2-4 A.)
(4) Rise, lifting the casualty to his knees, (figure 2-4 B). Take care to keep
the casualty's head from snapping back while you are raising him to his feet.
(5) Lower your arms, secure a hold on the casualty, and raise him to a
standing position with his knees locked.
(6) Put your arms around the casualty's waist and tilt his body slightly
backward to keep his knees from buckling.
(7) Place your foot between the casualty's feet and spread his feet so they
are about 6 to 8 inches a part (figure 2-4 C). You and the casualty are now in the
same position as the normal method of raising a casualty to his feet (figure 2-3 F).
