Yesterday, Andrew Brassard shared some pictures from a recent Brotherhood Instructors Man-In-The-Machine class with a rescue email group. The picture below jumped out at me and I quickly traded another email with Brass.
To be honest, I had never even thought about having to extricate a kid from a safe. Is it possible, you bet. Just google “kid trapped in a safe”. Think about all the safes in Dick’s Sporting Goods, Walmarts, Gander Mountains, etc…
Brass shared that for this drill they drilled several air holes and then used an angle grinder to cut off the top. Below is a video from across the pond with a combination of techniques to free the victim.
Do you have any experience with this type of rescue. If so, please share.
Pass it on!
