    If you move a person and by doing so, increase their injuries, then you can get sued. Remember the story three or four months ago about the nurse that refused to perform CPR on an elderly person? I knew of a truck driver that pulled a man from a burning car, only to find himself in court. He ended up losing nearly everything.
    I’m with you about helping people, but nowadays a good samaritan has to be careful. It’s the world we live in.

    Prayers for the family. But I wouldn’t want to live next door to the neighbor who called. Why, if you heard screams and thought someone was drowning would you not go over and see if you can help. We get these do gooders on cell phones all the time. For example they call and report a person lying on the sidewalk and they think they might be having a problem but they don’t stop to see, they just drive on and call for someone else to check. If you hear screaming call then go check or go check then call. That’s the problem with society nobody wants to get involved or help out.
