New life-saving technique for shark attack victims

A simple new first-aid technique could help avoid fatalities from shark attacks, according to a new study by The Australian National University (ANU). 

The method involves a bystander using their own bodyweight to make a fist and "push hard between the hips and the bits". 

Lead author, surfer, emergency physician and Associate Dean of the ANU Medical School, Dr Nicholas Taylor, said the method reliably stops or reduces blood loss by using immediately available resources to treat lower limb haemorrhage.
