Save a Life, Change A Life
Whoever saves a life is considered as if he saved an entire world (Talmud, Sanhedrin 37a). We’re all familiar with the above Gemara, but can we honestly say that we are living by it? Apparently not…if we go by the footage released in December 2016 of a man in New York who collapsed on the sidewalk. Tens of people walked by, cars and buses passed,and no one stopped to help or even call for help. Only five whole minutes later did an ambulance arrive. That’s unfortunate, because when a person suffers cardiac arrest and stops breathing, the sooner he receives CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), the better his chances of making a full recovery.
