This is a good thread on a couple of counts: One, how to handle someone else's crash injuries and, two, it's a cautionary tale regarding riding a sportbike. These bikes - no matter how rational we may be - sometimes override our basic survival instincts. A split second can turn a fun rip up the canyon into a struggle for survival. Thanks for posting, sro...a good reminder, even to 70 year-old <10K Club members who think they're more cautious (erroneously at times) than the young ones!

The rest of you should flatout be fvcking ashamed of yourselves. This man had seconds to act, and he did so flawlessly. I doubt many, if any of you could've acted with the same level of composure and proper prioritization. It's really easy to be a Paramedic from your office computer chair. There's a reason courts take into account the urgency of required action, and the resulting diminished judgement and control that come with it.
FER REALZ???
I have no idea, how you logically came to the conclusion, anyone was berating the camera guy.
The closest, is @z00 with "they could have moved him better," (which I don't disagree) but the rest of us, were merely theorizing ALL sorts of possibilities in play at any given moment.
Everyone seems to understand/agree that doing/attempting - something, in an emergency situation, (most, if not all the time) is better than simply watching someone die.

There was also the undertone of being aware it is a conscious decision each individual must make, and live with (good or bad) for the rest of their lives.

Not one post was "Monday morning quarterback."
The very end of your post is a regurgitation of what had already been posted, at least once in this thread.

Obviously you don't lack self confidence, but maybe try reading thoroughly + maybe a second time, an entire thread, before going off half-cocked.

Maybe you meant to say you were the most qualified person in THIS thread, (and that may well be), however it appears you may actually believe you are the most qualified out of the thousands of members, and lurkers who frequent this forum based on what you actually wrote in it's entirety.

Yes, that's what I was trying to accomplish.
