Mr. Davis sounds like a most self-centered, uncaring and litigiously paranoid individual. Frankly, I surprised he&#8217;s an MSF Instructor as he is obviously not motivated by a sense of caring for others. I would never ride with the like of him, because, very simply stated, You can not count on him to be there for you at a time when you would most need him. Back in 1988, I came upon a single vehicle wreck on I65 between Birmingham and Huntsville Alabama. The male driver of the truck had fallen asleep and drove off the road and flipped his truck. He was thrown through the windshield and his truck rolled over him. He was laying on his back in the middle of the North bound lane, badly broken up and bleeding profusely. Traffic had stopped but no one had checked him to see if he was breathing. I got down next to his head and talked to him verifying he was conscious and breathing, but before the Paramedics arrived he went into shock, probably from blood loss, and stopped breathing. Elevating his legs was not possible as they were both broken in several locations and were twisted up next to his torso. I started CPR and within 10 minutes the Paramedics arrived and relieved me. They called in Life Flight and flew him to a Trauma Center. He lived, and 3 months later I got a call from his Wife. She got my contact info from the Police Report and just wanted to say thank you. I have never regretted intervening.

I am ex-army and learnt first aid there and done refreshers a number of times since. I have never needed to use CPR for real but would have no hesitation in doing so. What is wrong with using a piece of cloth if you are that worried. As for litigation I think the best form for defence, should it arise, is &#8220;he was dead, now he isn&#8217;t". Maybe some time in the future he may be the person to get me out of the mire, or maybe someone he has saved will be. Does the MSF instructor want people to leave him in that situation - maybe he should have &#8220;Do nor resusitate&#8221; tattooed across his forehead.

I was shocked when reading about this. He doesn&#8217;t really care about others. If he did, he would know that there are mouth guards you can use for CPR to protect you. I know a few motorcyclists who have actually bought them, as this sort of thing concerned them. They wanted to help others, so they actually bought this guard, unlike the above MSF instructor.

I am as stunned as the rest of you. If you have a valid CPR Certification, 1)You are protected from most litigation under the Good Samaritan Law (provided you act reasonably and responsibly while administering), and 2)If you are on the scene before EMTs or Police, YOU ARE the First Responder, and are required to take any and all action necessary until help arrives - even if the victim appears to die under your care. Continuing care will also help your case in the event someone does try to sue. I carry a first aid kit (including a CPR mouth shield) in both of my cars and on my bike. I always want to be in the position to act, without fear, to the best of my abilities. The best thing for Mr. Davis to do would be to voluntarily surrender his CPR Cert. Then he won&#8217;t even have to worry about a downed rider&#8217;s sexual habits.
