Took CPR and basic first aid from this site. They're legit.

I just winged it. No formal training. The guy stayed dead though. Turns out he had had five previous by-pass surgeries.

The timing of this thread is coincidental. I was on the beach in Isle of Palms, SC yesterday morning and heard some ladies yelling for help. I was one of three to go see what was up. The two ladies were trying to keep a man conscience and breathing. He was slumped over in a rocking chair on the back porch. He didn't have much of a pulse and quit breathing a few times. The first guy was on the phone with 911. The other guy and I helped get the guy laid out on the porch so the medics could go right to work when the arrived. Then we went to greet the first responders. None of the five people trying to help this man knew or were certified in CPR. The first EMS guy to arrive was solo shortly followed by a police officer. The EMS guy asked the officer if he knew CPR and could continue while he got the defibulator set up. The officer did not know CPR either but followed instructions for chest compressions. I left at that point because I didn't want to be in the way of the responders. I hear the man lived which is great. His chances would have probably been a lot better though if somebody that cared enough to try to help knew CPR.

Literally anyone should be able to at least do chest compressions, unless its an infant or really small child. Hell I would rather be alive with a few broken ribs then DOA to the hospital with no blood to certain area's for longer than 5 minutes... Play the song staying alive in your head, hand over hand and pump to the beat right above sternum..

I hear what you are saying. If I'm lying on the deck I'm all for anyone giving it a try. Not everyone is that way. You can get into a "no good deed goes unpunished" situation. Help was close. I may have tried to do more if the situation was different.
