The same thing can happen with fall restraint. If the person who fell can’t self-rescue, their harness can cut off circulation to the legs. Very important to get them down as fast as possible.

This is the reason that many safety harnesses have a rope or wire attachment that allows them to create a loop to step into so that they can stand in their harness to prevent this issue until rescue.
