Film with an instructional purpose showing the rescue procedure for soldiers suffering from hypothermia.
Reconstruction of a mountain rescue mission for an exhausted trooper staggering through the snow and in danger of succumbing to hypothermia "...he's literally freezing to death". The procedure when finding the victim is illustrated: stopping the heat loss (getting him out of wet clothes and covering him up in a sleeping bag), finding shelter and warming the victim (warm drink, no alcohol). Helicopter (Whirlwind XP398) arrives and victim is stretchered off. Captions summarise the advice already given.
