Jim Cunningham saves the life of this dummy every working day – sometimes in a training pool, sometimes in the open sea. The dummy is also saved by trainees. It is the same weight and size as a human and is equally awkward to man-handle in water. Trainees in the marine industries learn how to rescue the dummy and strap it to the yellow stretcher. Jim kindly gave us 10 minutes to take their portraits as they were being transferred from the training pool to the quayside in the back of a van.
