At a crime scene, a preliminary medical examination of the body is key to the investigation’s success. Examining the body as soon as possible after its discovery can provide vital clues to the investigating officers.
On-site medical examinations of bodies found in water are more difficult than on land. When a body is in the water, whether at the bottom or at the surface, it is extremely difficult to extract it without losing clues. Depending on the depth, the currents, the tidal coefficients and time, the type of floor or bed, the clothes it is wearing, the wind, the swell and the distance from the coast, it can be very complicated to raise a body under optimal conditions for its preservation.
To recover a body at sea, rescue services are often on the “front line” and so are the first de facto “managers” of the crime scene. Their reactions will partially determine the success or failure of the legal findings that are necessary to solving the crime and identifying the victim. As a result, there is a heavy burden on them as first responders.
Because forensic science is not their priority, bodies are often brought out of the water in tarps or nets and are sometimes even pulled directly aboard the ship, with no protective measures taken whatsoever. Over and above the fact that raising a body - particularly one that is decomposing - can be traumatic for divers, protective measures must absolutely be in place to prevent any clues from being lost.
Today, crime scenes are subject to strict rules of protocol. Managing a crime scene at sea can quickly become complicated, and applying these rules demands real knowledge of the marine environment. To overcome these difficulties, a reusable amphibious body bag has been developed, taking the forensic aspect of body removal into account. Scroll Down for Request to Quote.
