When I worked in corrections I was required to know CPR and First Aide.
It was a few years back when a young boy came walking up to my door...
"I need help." He said.
I fell off my bike.
When I looked at the boys hands I seen something of a mangled mess.
I could tell he was in major pain.
My kids knew who he was and so I put the young man in my car with soft
pillow in his lap to set his hands on.
I headed for the hospital and sent my kids to find one of the parents.
I was so glad I had an idea of how to help this boy by firs staying calm.
If you have never had a first aide course...take one.
They are harmless and it could save a life!
The Dr. later told me that the way I helped the young man may have save one of his hands.
They healed but not with a few minor issues.\
Again, take the course!!!!
