If you are picking someone up who is down, you should be moving them away from the fight to being helped at a rally point or triage center, if they happen to soak uncalled bullets, that's a happy coincidence in your favor. If they suffer a called effect, you must drop them or suffer the called effect yourself. I don't believe that's codified in the Rulebook, but I think that was a field ruling made in FI 1 that seemed sensical that I'm gonna keep.
If you are picking someone up & using them as a bullet shield you are doing it wrong. Please don't do that.
SPIRIT OF THE RULE: Technically I guess you can... but technically makes you a chump, which violates Rule 1, don't be a chump, so... don't do it, but don't sweat the small stuff that happens accidentally.
Note to self: Add to rulebook.
