The "tourniquet man" was an Oceanic 815 survivor who was trapped under a piece of plane wreckage shortly after the crash. Jack, hearing his cry for help, noticed his legs were crushed under a piece of landing gear and enlisted Locke and another survivor to help pull him out. Jack applied a tourniquet to his leg to stop the bleeding, which he removed later that evening. The following day, Jack commented to Boone that he ("tourniquet man") should be fine. ("Pilot, Part 1")

If this man had not died prior to the beginning of time shifts, then he died in the flaming arrow attack in 1954, ("The Lie") since Rose and Bernard Nadler are presumed to be the only survivors of it who are not main characters. ("The Incident, Part 1")


Kamakani De Dely's face is visible for only a few frames in one of the several scenes featuring the tourniquet man in "Exposé".

For most of the scene featuring "tourniquet man" (and the death of Gary Troup), recycled footage from "Pilot, Part 1" was used, although De Dely was visible for a few frames in a brief cut inserted after previous-used footage of Radomski. De Dely is also visible in promotional photography for the episode,

in which background survivor Wayne Geiger also replaces Fuzzy Moody as the person helping Locke move "tourniquet man."

  • De Dely's identity was revealed in a forum post by him at Lost-TV forums [1].
