Re: Two young men to the rescue
Back about 1972, I was driving with a friend and saw an accident occur behind me. I turned around and went back, and there was a bunch of gawkers standing around doing nothing, and a man hanging from the car and bleeding. Being just back from overseas, I knew what was needed and got him on his back, cleared the airway, stopped the bleeding, etc. Then I reached inside his jacket to feel for a heartbeat and this ritzy-looking woman started shrieking," He's robbing him, someone do something," over and over. After a few seconds I was sick of it, walked over to her boyfriend and said, "Either call someone for this guy, or HER, if you can't shut her up!" Once he was breathing again, I left, but I always think of that incident whenever a see a hysterical woman.
