One of the rules for CPR (CardioPulmonary Resuscitation) is you can only do to your ability. If you try to do too much, you may hurt the person. But if you are certified and you do what you can, you have the good samaritan rules to back you up. They can try to sue you but it will get stopped in court. Another rule is that if you don't think something's not right and there is someone lying in the street with a bike you don’t have to help because you are putting yourself in harm's way.
First when you start CPR you have to tap their shoulder and ask if they are OK. Secondly, you have to start with chest compressions to try to make their heart to start again. After 30 compressions, you have to give them 2 rescue breaths and look at their chest if it is moving up and down. Lastly, you point someone out of the crowd and tell them call 9-11 and then when you’re done give the phone to me and put it on speaker so they can tell me what to do until the paramedics get to the scene. Also if there is an active AED you have to use it because it gives you directions while you’re using it.
