C: Blood loss (20% of total blood) from a huge cut on the leg.
He is the priority number one patient as blood loose is vital and can become lifethreatening. The first aid approach would require the use of gloves and put on sterile dressing or
a clean piece of cloth on the open would on the leg to ensure that the blood loss becomes
controlled. Put direct pressure on the wound through the hands and continually reevaluate the
bleeding rate from the cut to establish whether there is a need for an additional sterile cloth to
become placed on top of the first cloth. However, since the wound is deep into the leg and to

shock as the blood loses may lead to unresponsiveness and patient experiences shock.
B: Suspected spinal injuries from the blow. The victim is sitting on the driving seat
