    They shoulda gotten McGinnis Leathers to do this.

  3. That’s totally incorrect. You don’t heat rocks. If you were in the wilderness, the correct course of action would be to put plenty clothes on, a fire, and yes. Curling up in a ball. You clearly don’t have a clue what you’re talking about. I’d like to see you try to survive in the wilderness with your misguided methods. If you’re going to try to make a correction on someones life saving information, make sure you do your research first.

  4. lol. dude, you heat up rocks and put them on your stomach, neck, and waist. best cure for hypothermia, right next to steam/smoke baths.

    that wouldnt cure you from hypothermia at all, its just going to pospone your death. dont curl into a ball near a fire, thats just gonna give you small ammounts of heat, nothing else.

    if its warm enough for you to give her all your clothes? how the hell did she get hypothermia?!?!
    the only good thing about these videos is that the retards that listen to your shit will die in the wild…so thanks for helping clear the gene pool…stupid ass!

    perhaps yiu should note that once your fire is built up and she is stiped of her moist clothing and using the sleeping bag method and the warm buddy method you should use your thermometer to check her internal temp…..if done corectly this will make her blood boil..so be careful .just trying to help!!!!

  8. great advice! thank you so much

  9. apart from the useful information, this dude needs some acting/speech lessons – breath on time man!

  16. yeah i would be happy to share my body heat with that girl if you know what i meen

    …and this is why you always want to have a proper survival kit with you when out in the wild. Then you’d have a space blanket.

    Seriously: the basic pieces of information in this video are sound (losing track of what’s going on, shivering, share body heat etc…), but this is only a very very basic video which cannot possibly cover everything that there is to say about hypothermia in less than 3 minutes. You could fill an hour with this topic and you’d still not have covered everything.

  18. Hypothermia does not allways hapen when you are wet! This is not a very good video telling what to do.

    yea^^ agree with you
    saw about 10 for now and all sucked.
    “expert” village
    call it noob “village”
    those videos are for fat old people, who dont really want to try any of these things out.
    srry^^

  20. remember that a severe hypothermia victim may DIE if you hit them up using fire, reason: the fire makes a “fake” warm and this will result in warm blood leaving the heart and cold blood returning to it, meaning heartstroke, this has happen to many people not knowing what they did, the best way to rewarm is to lay naked inside your sleeping bag with a normal tempature buddy, that way you will rewarm natually and slowly, been a medic in the Army so i know what im saying
