And they're gonna filled out -- with gripping. We're gonna. Opt to do it all five point parallel -- on this -- -- -- a floor by floor being an eight foot beam. The back window here we're gonna build up to -- -- one on each side of the car. Wanted to -- entitled to the underside that -- by -- being we're actually going to be able to this vehicle completely up off the ground in order to free our victim. We have some options for this -- goes we like to have back -- under the rules. And not look like that -- a high pressure air bag that. Not sheet metal is not very secure we -- get a lot of -- and probably wouldn't get a very good at all. Another option we have. We could try to lift off the trunk.

What we're gonna -- we're gonna do this Paulo live with a four by four being a -- -- -- much today particularly. We're gonna get into lifting -- vehicle now. I sludge and we've prepared -- for life -- -- back to extricate her from underneath the clock. Well we're gonna do now is we're gonna complete our lives that we're gonna commit with a plywood -- to give our solid they. Clearly put that on top of that. And we're gonna -- war by war through the back into the car. We are back up again we want -- act -- in this case. We're using twenty times back in the seventeenth time that we want to try your biggest back we can get in place -- wouldn't get that added height we need. I'm gonna -- that form by -- growth. -- we want to try to -- nearly picked up four by four right into the corner here. We've got to throw wanna make sure it's got leaving covered Jumbo size the vehicle it it might be why Clark spotted a -- -- in check and make sure we have even -- that overhang. -- -- -- We want that are on the act we don't want an -- -- one side than the other.

To -- portions. -- Now as we could they were -- it right -- Against the door frame here will get -- list. -- were set up where even humble -- we're ready to Scarlett. -- General sent back.

We connected to our -- we need to do this on both sides. Clark controller goes firefighter on the controller has got to try as best he can to apply even pressure the -- activating -- If we were to do it on evenly. The lift to get uneven results when we were just -- the command is not -- to be up on up he's got to apply for those activating not evenly. And if okay stop and offense. -- -- -- -- -- We -- -- Clarence we're gonna take committed to reset all our stabilization. And a walk to load out. Are -- by -- act as a stabilizer. We could now move on to the expectation this station. As we say -- stabilized load with captured it. We've got enough lift not reform our education. Firefighters going to be able to get the body parts that were pinned under the and the people -- and aren't extricate this person. We got to try to pay particular attention -- -- mobilization is an overturn. -- per may have incurred neck and back injuries -- -- as best we can we want -- mobilize that head. Important call this nation to pass them off the end that as quickly as we can. Like you can say what we've done here is that -- floor by floor below an eight foot long ball. Through the back window here we are in place we -- -- -- this vehicle. Great -- it to get. A good degree of -- that we get somebody out -- time. I bought it bought fallen out -- I think.
