Please don't reference it by 'Good Samaritan'
June 25, 2018 9:57 am

Jews should not use this phrase, but should instead use ‘The Good Neighbour Clause’ or the like. The term ‘Good Samaritan’ comes from the Christian bilble and was used in a story to discredit Torah-true, authentic Jews.

The good Samaritan act protects us.
As a nurse I would jump right in
Easy to be a critic while we type lol
He did good!!!!

CPR! Everyone should learn it!
June 22, 2018 11:25 am

YOU NEVER KNOW..!
I’m – G-d willing – going to learn it again! (Did it years ago, but at end of the course, didn’t feel really proficient enough to use it)

When I was learning CPR the guy told us that in such a situation u will either kill the guy or he will die…

Good Samaritan law
June 21, 2018 6:34 pm

The Good Samaritan law only applies if you have a CPR certificate that’s obviously not expired if you don’t and you do perform CPR then you can be sued or worse

Good Samaritan Law...

I believe that bystanders are allowed to help and can’t usually be sued. Probably different if someone drags a crash victim incorrectly and paralyzes them for life.

What you wrote was once indeed true, however in 1984, New York State passed it’s own version of the good Samaritan laws, which provide a certain level of legal immunity to first responders acting in good faith, within their level of expertise and without expectation of compensation (I do recall however, that once one begins administering aid it is illegal to stop until either the situation has stabilized, it becomes unsafe for the first responder (even due to a lack of Personal Protective Equipment such as gloves), or the first responder is replaced with someone of equal or better training).… Read more »

No. It’s called good Samaritan laws. So long as negligence isn’t there

The Real Story
June 21, 2018 1:20 pm

I actually carried him out of the car. HE passed out and the car rolled to a stop. A few people called 911 and then once 911 dispatcher instructed me to carry him out of the car, 2 people assisted me to carry him and put him on the grass. A bochur who knew cpr volunteered to start trying to revive him. we flagged down a passing ambulance who took over, then a fire truck came and then finally the ambulance that was dispatched. Took like 10 min for ambulance to respond. Unfortunately the man did not have a heart… Read more »

CPR has changed a lot in the past 40 years
Hatzola has been giving CPR courses for 18$ , 3 hours long, that teach you exactly what to do, how, and when to do it. Highly recommended for everyone

There is something called “Good Samaretin Law” that protects those that intervene medically to an UNCONSCIOUS stranger under the assumption that he want the help but cannot agree to accept it.
You should do CPR RIGHT AWAY. Do not wait as someones life gets lost.
What that lifeguard was speaking about was with a conscious person.
listen better next time to your training class and I hope no one takes your words as correct.

I’m not a hatzalah member, but if I’m not mistaken there is a law called the Good Samaritan law that protects anyone who attempts to save someone’s life from being sued – even if they cause damage ch”v. Otherwise, people on the street would be too afraid to help anyone…

If you were really told that 40 years ago, a lot has changed since then. To leave someone without aid for the amount of time it takes for emergency services to arrive – even if they are called immediately by cell phone – could very easily be the difference between life and death. I have taken CPR courses twice in the past 10 years and the very clear instruction is that one is to delegate someone ELSE to call an ambulance, and immediately begin CPR, continuing until the ambulance arrives.

What a kidush hashems

This has to go viral

Beautiful story! However..
June 21, 2018 9:57 am

Certainly he was well-intentioned and made a Kiddush Hashem. Notwithstanding, I don’t want to be the fly in the ointment, but I am not sure if I agree with his actions. About 40 years ago(!), when I was taking a Lifesaving class in CGI, the lifeguard who was giving the course instructed us that we were to only provide emergency first-aid to friends and family. For all others, we should call an ambulance / seek out professional care. He explained that with strangers, even if we did everything right, if anything were to go wrong, we would be blamed.

how did he get out of the car? did it crash
June 21, 2018 9:41 am

story says ‘while driving’ he had heart attack.

good point about not needing the CPR

i think more details are missing

beautiful
June 21, 2018 9:06 am

wow simply amazing!!!

Nice, but he did it wrong
June 21, 2018 7:36 am

Kudos for him stepping in, but the man was breathing and had a pulse, so CPR should not be performed.
I’m not knocking what he did, just trying to teach for the future.

WHEN DOING CPR DO NOT TAKE A BREAK BESIDES FOR GIVING THEM BREATHES OR APPLYING AN AED.
