Propeller Cut Tourniquet

Women Struck By Boat Propeller off Cayo Costa

Sunday afternoon a woman was struck by a boat propeller in her leg off Cayo Costa, which is in the Cape Coral, Florida area. The circumstances and severity of the injury remain unclear at this time, but we imagine that a tourniquet was used to control bleeding as she is still alive. 

This incident should remind people that boating and the water have inherent risks, and carrying the correct tourniquet an first aid kit is a vital component to first aid success.

Best Boat Tourniquets

"Having an OMNA Maritime Tourniquet® whether its the Amphibious Tourniquet™, Marine Tourniquet™, or any of the OMNA Tourniquet Leashes is your best bet to control extremity hemorrhaging when enjoying the water."
