According to the American Heart Association, 360,000 people suffer cardiac arrest outside of a hospital. Less than 10 percent of those people survive.
However, if bystanders immediately perform hands-only CPR or use an AED while waiting for paramedics to arrive survival rates can skyrocket.
Good Samaritan laws are in place by state and federal government to protect bystanders who do something instead of nothing. Feel confident helping in an emergency knowing you’re protected.
