Seminole County Sheriff Uses SOFTT-Wide on Gator Attack Victim – August 18, 2015

In Seminole County, Florida, a local sheriff’s deputy used his tourniquet on a woman whose arm was bitten off by an alligator while swimming in the Wekiva River. He got the TQ in place just before paramedics arrived. The deputy had previously pushed to get tourniquets in every patrol car, though he never imagined it being used for an alligator bite. Now every deputy and police car in Seminole County has a “Go Bag” that includes a SOF® Tactical Tourniquet Wide, OLAES® Modular Bandage, tape, and other items. More details can be viewed here.
