LATERAL POSITION
a position in which an unconscious victim is placed on one side with the weight supported by the under shoulder, under hip and the upper knee, the upper leg being flexed at the hip. The face is turned slightly downwards to allow the tongue to fall forwards so that saliva or vomit will drain out. (ARC)
