Abstract Fast rescue is essential for people who fall accidentally into a river. Victims are often injured and/or in shock because of sudden contact with cold water. As such, they are in danger of losing consciousness. In order to be able to save them, it is essential for potential rescue personnel to learn the techniques practised by professional diving personnel. In addition, rescue equipment must be kept up-to-date and in good condition.
