OMNA Tourniquets Recommended For Boat Propeller Injury

Three Children Injured By Boat Propeller In Tennessee

Reports indicate that four children being towed behind a boat on a tube were injured when the boat operator made a turn, which caused the tube to collide with the boat. Of the four children 3 were injured. One child was lucky to jump out of the way. The ages of the three injured children are 6, and 8 years old, and one child was airlifted to UT Medical Center, and the other 2 injured were taken by ambulance to LaFollette Medical Center. TWRA is currently investigating the incident.

Boat propellers are one of the most dangerous parts of a boat.

Propeller injuries such as this are why you should always have at least 1 or more Marine Tourniquets with you or on your boat. Remember not all tourniquets are the same, marine environments require specific specifications for tourniquet durability.

Our recommendation is to carry OMNA Tourniquets when boating.
