Honorary Stories...

A while ago there was a CPR training course at a local community college. As they were doing their scenarios a person not in the class happened to walk past. The person doing the scenario checked the mock victim for a pulse. Upon discovering that the victim had no pulse he directed the passerby to go call 911, which he actually did. The call came in for a full arrest with CPR in progress. When the paramedics got there they found a confusing situation where people were sort of doing CPR but there was none of the urgency normally associated by people in this type of situation. When it was all straightened out the CPR instructors were told to make sure that the right people were told to call 911 during their scenarios.
