Class D

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure I know the answer, and I'm also sure there is someone on here who can save me the time digging through CAR's to find it. If one is faced with the unpleasant job of recovering a body is a class D cert required?

No. Class D is "Live human external loads". Have heard of bodies recovered from a crash site using a net to carry four body bags with remains. I think the old adage "you can't kill a person twice" applies here...

Our policy in Canmore/Banff was put them in the hook.

 

Ummmm... So you put the hook through the ribcage ? Through the back of the skull ? :huh:

 

Sorry, couldn't resist... :P

 

I know. I'm a sick puppy... :rolleyes:

Thanks fellas, just wanted to make sure I haven't and wasn't about to break any rules. (customers were dead set on the Class D being required) I'll second your net suggestion, it is definitely the way to go Skidz. As for your humor... ya kinda funny. Haha

As grotesque as it may sound, I know of one high altitude, Class D, mountain rescue pilot who had to strip his machine down to bare bones and design a "treble hook" in order to try to retrieve a deceased fallen climber at a location over 15,000 ft so that the family could gain closure. In the end, the retrieval was not successful on that particular mission.
