Water Rescue Tip - The Power of Adrenaline
When a victim sees the shore and thinks they are safe, or a victim
is on the hands of a rescuer, their body stops releasing adrenaline.
Unfortunately, without that adrenaline, their body shuts down. Watch
as Megan experiences this when she reaches the shore and finds
herself unable to move.
This is an example of how the skills covered in Rescue, Recover,
Re-warm can be used by responders to save lives. First Responders
need to encourage the victim to keep working to assist in their
own rescue, recovery, and re-warming process.
