U.S. Border Patrol Agents Save Victim with SOF®TT-W – July 2017

A U.S. Army veteran was bleeding profusely from his arm after the truck he was riding in flipped over. He attempted to use a makeshift tourniquet but was too weak to tighten it, and none of the bystanders had a commercial tourniquet. Thankfully, two U.S. Border Patrol agents happened upon the scene. The agents applied a SOF® Tactical Tourniquet Wide to the victim. He was transported to a trauma center and has since returned home. Watch the YouTube video to hear directly from the patient and the agents. This story is a great example why EVERYONE should know how to use a tourniquet. Learn more about the story here.
