    I don't know who the idiot was who said they were administrating cpr, maybe it was the ignorant woman recording the whole thing, but I heard the whole story from my friend who was working on the scene and trust me, she wasn't giving cpr. She did exactly what she should have been doing and kept the victim awake and talking until EMS arrived.

    He hit his head?

    By on

    a) No harm done then.
    b) At least he landed on something soft.
    c) That's okay, he wasn't using it anyways.
    d) "He does this all the time", does he? Well, that explains a lot.
