And, i dont think he got lucky, seeing how he evaluated the situation like he did.

But ya... if my world suddendly turns into an fps, my cs:s training will really help me... i just gotta remember not to push my spots when im counter terriost and use my mic to communicate with my teammates. And if i'm t side praise allah?
You can only not get prosecuted if you are registered CPR, or other kinds of certifications. In this guys case, since he didn't have any real certification (not including the video games certification) so if he had messed up and it rusulted in one of those people's death, he would be sued.
