..You have a leader and a victim observer [whose] job is to make contact visually with the victim and try to talk to him,...Talk to him? Fighting for his life, in freezing water, and they want to talk to him?V.O.- Hi, how you doin'?Victim- Help me, please, I'm drowning!V.O.- Ok, but I think you need to calm down, it's only water!Victim- Heeelp! V.O.- First, we need to establish that you realize where you are. Do you know where you are?Victim- I'm dying!V.O.- Well, that's your opinion, we have yet to establish that. How long have you been here?Victim- sputter gasp glub glubV.O.- Hey guys, nevermind, he just left. Let's go back to the house.
