Caption: Road accident first aid. Woman using a mobile phone to call for emergency aid for the victim of a road traffic accident (RTA). She has already placed the injured man in the recovery position. This position is used for unconscious patients who are breathing and have a heartbeat, provided there is no obvious injury to the back or neck. The bent arm and leg prop the patient and his head in a stable position, keeping the airways clear and allowing fluids (like vomit and blood) to drain safely without choking him.

Release details: Model release available. Property release not required.
