Here’s a maneuver that can make it easier to get someone who is not injured out of the water. First, have the person in the water is face you, and then ask them to raise their arms straight up and cross them over their head. When their arms are crossed, grasp their wrists firmly with your hands—put your right hand on their right wrist and your left on their left. When you pull up on their wrists the lifting motion will also twist the person around 180 degrees. The rotation will leave them facing away from you, but it will then be easier for them to assume a seated position on the edge of a deck, dinghy, or dock.
