The car driver did remain at the accident site, and the victim was not moving at all, which of course means a lot of neurological damage that needed the aid units. Because turning him over and doing CPR would have been dangerous for him.
Just FYI – if someone needs CPR (i.e., they aren’t breathing), you shouldn’t be considering any other injuries. They don’t matter. If they aren’t breathing, that’s soon going to be fatal without immediate CPR. A spinal/head injury (assuming that’s what “neurological damage” is referring to), while alarming, is not necessarily fatal, and not as much of an immediate concern in this case.
Correct. Good for all to know. And tough call for a bystander. I worked on neurosurgery @ UWMC for many years. But everyone should know this. And be sure you are current in CPR, as well.
I was on the metro bus passing by the accident. And the impulse was to get out of the bus to help. there were five or six people around and the aid car was coming. I will get current on my CPR soon. And I will follow up with Metro.
Cameras are of great help in such situations. My dad was in an accident but the blame was coming on him as he was drunk. We took help of a good DUI lawyer and he came out with truth. It is true that my dad was at fault but accident didn’t happen because of him.
