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..
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..
