Hand of God Rescue

Hand of Pavia

Actually, though it is easier to rescue a cooperative victim, the HoP rescue is not relegated to use on victims who know how to make it work. While it is much easier to roll a victim up who helps by laying back or leaning forward, in the video I’m sitting rigidly straight upright which definitely makes for a harder rotation for the rescuer.

If the rescuer knows how to use his/her body weight to advantage, this rescue works on cooperative or uncooperative victims.
