VIDEO: Falls happen on ice, in homes, and outside.

When EMS and fire crews respond, Des Moines Fire says it’s easy for them to get hurt when lifting someone that has fallen.

That’s why Jeff Downing, an engineer with Des Moines fire, created the Jak Harness.

“I felt the need to create this because in recent years we’ve been going on more and more calls of people that have fallen down and they’re not injured and they can’t get up,” Downing said.
