There is a woman at church that I visit who is 90 years old. She is really active, despite having serious heart problems. I have known her for many years, but have only been her visiting teacher for the past year.
Today at church I noticed the woman next to her, and the man behind her get alarmed. Pretty soon another man got up and came over. I strained to look over and see if I could see if she was breathing. I was too far away to tell. But then I noticed that a man in our Ward who is a CPR instructor, was sitting on the stand, and was watching. I trusted him that if there were an emergency, he would get up and help. Since he didn't get up, I stayed in my seat. But it was all I could do not to get up and see for myself. Turns out that she had passed out, but still had a pulse and was breathing. The Bishop got up and went and got a wheel chair, and the men took her out to the foyer where paramedics showed up to check her out. I heard that they did end up taking her to the hospital. I need to call and see if everything is okay.
It's hard for me because I'm not a professional, but I would hate for someone to die just because no one tried to help. My kids always get upset that I jump and get involved when something like that happens. But if it was serious, and I didn't try to help, I know I would have to live with guilt.
