Water Forensic Body Recovery System

Developed with the assistance of Strathclyde Police, this system can be used to recover a body on (or immediately beneath) the surface of the water. The Recovery Bag is attached to an SB Rescue Sling, enabling the operator to quickly and easily capture the body and close the bag without having to physically touch the body.

The sling can be re-used many times. The Recovery Bag  (and optional additional Head / Hands / Feet Forensic Bags ) are designed for once-only use.
