HOW TO FIND DROWNED PERSONS





Category: Accidents, Emergencies and Poisons

Make a board raft, ten or twelve feet
square. Cut a round hole in the center, eight or ten inches in diameter.
Lie down on the raft with the face over the hole, covering the head with a
coat or shawl, to exclude the light. By this contrivance the rays of the
light are concentrated directly under the raft, and objects of any size
can be seen a considerable distance below the surface. Tow the raft over
the place where the drowned person is supposed to be. If the body has just
gone under and no raft can be provided at once, dive or drag the bottom
with line and hooks. The important object is to rescue the body at the
earliest possible moment. If the body is not rescued, it will rise to the
surface within a week or ten days.

Three hundred lives are lost in Michigan every year from drowning. If by
studying and learning how to carry out the directions in this article, you
can be a life saver at some critical moment, the few moments spent in
careful reading will be well repaid. Master the directions so that you
will be able to do everything possible in case of accident.
