(I’m not a paramedic, but I am trained to deal with epilepsy and seizures. While at a store, a customer starts having a seizure. I rush over and start helping, when someone else jumps in.)

Customer #1: “Give him CPR!”

Me: “He doesn’t need CPR; his heart is fine.”

Customer #1: “He’ll stop breathing. Move out of the way!”

Me: “He’s having a seizure!”

Customer #1: “Move! I’ll help him!”

(He tries pushing me out of the way, but instead falls on the ground.)

Customer #1:She hurt me! So much pain!”

Customer #2: “Dude, I saw what happened. Get away from her!”

(He grumbled a bit and left. The customer on the floor was fine, and did not need CPR.)
