"Another manikin, Rescue Randy, is described as offering realistic training in extrication of the wounded. One version weighs 145 pounds, while another weighs 165. The company has not said whether it plans to make a heavier model." The new heavier and realistic models are to reflect the ever increasing weight of the average American. It says current models still fall short since the average American weighs 188 pounds! When you're through with the mannequin, you can doll it up in Homeland Security's new fall/winter collection. Read more in the Sunday New York Times "It's a New World, and Everybody Gets to Play..." Ugh.
