The Piggy Back Carry, also known as the Back Carry, is another first aid technique used to transport an injured or exhausted person over a short distance. This method can be helpful when the person is unable to walk or needs support while walking.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to perform a Piggy Back Carry:

  1. Have the person who needs assistance stand behind you and facing your back.
  2. Bend your knees slightly and have them place their arms around your neck for support.
  3. Bend your knees slightly and lift the person up, ensuring their legs are wrapped around your waist.
  4. Hold their hands or wrists with your arms underneath their legs to maintain balance and control.
  5. Walk slowly and steadily, ensuring the person’s weight is evenly distributed and their head, neck, and spine remain aligned.

In the Piggy Back Carry, it is crucial to maintain proper support for the person’s head, neck, and spine to prevent any further injury. Always communicate with your assistant and adapt the carrying method based on the person’s needs and available resources. If you are unsure about the proper carrying technique or if the person’s condition worsens, seek professional medical assistance immediately.
