The Good Samaritan

The Good Samaritan Law protects all who assist those who are injured, ill or in peril. As long as they’re acting voluntary, without expectation of reimbursement or compensation while performing such aid, on-site—they’ll have legal protection. Remember, when performing CPR every second counts so unless required otherwise, don’t hesitate to call 911, perform CPR or external chest compressions immediately.

It's important to note: that the AHA guidelines recommend in-confident performers should, at least, perform chest compressions upon the patient, since studies show chest compressions can be as effective as the combination of CPR.
