As an certified EMT, I was extreamly shocked! We are trained not to do a freakin finger test, but there are real machines to double check these kind of things. Not feeling a pulse, doesn't mean he is dead. An extreamly drunk man can apear to have no pulse and to not be breathing! And being an organ doner, this creeps me out.

How could that happen???? Seriously, if someone has no pulse, no breathing, they are dead. But don't you attempt life saving?.

I have not read the article because I have nightmares about this crap..Laughing
But to answer this question.
You can be sued in certain situations if you attempt life saving procedures on someone who MAY have a DNR in place. ( DNR- do not recessitate )
These DNR's are part of people's will & living testaments . If you do not know they are there, the law MAY be able to protect you , but sometimes it isnt likely.
But, again... i didnt read the article so i dont know the entire story..
