Stay calm. We’ve all heard stories about the Good Samaritan who gets hit by a car while trying to help someone else. Creating another accident or another victim complicates things much more – almost more than not getting involved. If you can’t help safely, you shouldn’t help, “It’s important that you stay calm, make sure you’re not putting yourself or anyone else in jeopardy, then attempt to help.” Take a deep breath, and repeat A, B, C!

Airway, Breathing, Circulation.

Airway? Open it. Breathing? Assist if needed. Circulation? Start CPR if necessary!
