Few people may pass right by at the sight of a stranger in a life-threatening situation, but not the people in this heartwarming clip! 


SEE ALSO: A photographer reunites with her homeless father on the streets after years of being separated




In the above video shared by YTN on May 10, a man suddenly keels over at Digital media city station in Seoul, and strangers immediately come to his rescue. One man starts performing CPR on him while others gather around and try to help in any way they can. A girl, who looks to be a student, takes out her phone and calls for help. 


The tipster who sent the video into YTN states, "It was a nice sight to see." We couldn't agree more! Hopefully the man who fainted is now safe and sound thanks to the fast-acting kindhearted people.

I know I might seem like an ass for asking this but does anyone know what happened to him after this?

minho_hwang uhhidk Tuesday, May 10, 2016

I'm sure with all those people helping him, he was probably able to get medical attention quickly.

This restored my faith in humanity. It's nice to know that there are kind people out there. You should start making more positive articles AKP.

Well, you don't see this everyday, that's for sure. Glad to know there are actually people out there who would help. (:

Now this is nice news Akp :) I wanna see more of these types of news and less of those animal cruelty news.

I dont know, they dont look like they are giving him any breaths. You are supposed to give 30 compressions to 2 breaths.

RoAnon9935 Susu14 Tuesday, May 10, 2016

It's okay. I'm CPR certified here. The main point is keeping the blood circulating as you press on the chest the lungs do suck in a little air. It is not ideal but better then nothing.

TVfXQ Susu14 Tuesday, May 10, 2016

But if you aren't a professional doing compressions only is fine as well. I read that at a first aid book. Some people don't like having to touch mouth with the unconscious person or vice versa - it's a bit controversial. You were right although, 30 compressions to 2 breaths is the more correct way to do it.

RoAnon9935 TVfXQ Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Not a bit controversial, because the most important thing is to buy time for EMTs to get there. Essentially speaking the person down is already dead so long as his heart is not beating. As you press on the chest a little air does go into their lungs but most important thing is the blood keeps flowing and the brain does keep getting a little oxygen. Remember the longer the brain is without any oxygen the faster it dies. There are times that even a trained first aid provider with CPR certification will choose not to mouth to mouth contact as well. With CPR the survival rate is low so I am happy to hear this turned out well.

NaRei Susu14 Tuesday, May 10, 2016

technically unless the person or a family member gives you permission if your a random person the general rule is to not give breaths utill you have a cover

RoAnon9935 NaRei Tuesday, May 10, 2016

I have never herd that before. It is kind of confusing too. Most risk comes from chest compression and not what may get passed via mouth to mouth.

NaRei RoAnon9935 Tuesday, May 10, 2016

yeah chest compression has more threats as you break the persons ribs and such. i think i was confused when i wrote my comment what i meant was like you said you dont need breaths and also there was a case where someone sued the person who gave them mouth to mouth and saved them bc they "didnt want mouth to mouth" so people are more cautious to do it now... *tries to explain previous comment but just makes a more confusing weird one*

RoAnon9935 NaRei Tuesday, May 10, 2016

In most countries a person giving CPR is protected from getting in trouble trying to save a life. Especially in Korea. In matter in some places you can get in trouble for NOT doing anything. Again when the person heart is not beating the person is considered dead. In the words of my CPR instructor "You can't do anymore harm to a dead person",

NaRei RoAnon9935 Tuesday, May 10, 2016

true i was super pissed when i read the article bc the person literally helped bring this person back from the dead and they got repaid by getting sued... this is why i have no faith in society lol

RoAnon9935 NaRei Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Feel reassured you are protected in most countries. They can try to sue but most times it is thrown out. That is why so many people are scared to use AEDs when available. The instructions are clear and they have pictures so even untrained if you see one you CAN use it. If your at a mall, train station or any major public area it is advised you send someone, just point at someone and send them, to go see if the site has and AED. If you see someone down first response should be point at a person get them to call emergency right away. This makes certain it is done. Have someone run to see if Security or the place staff have an AED then begin life saving procedures. I have no faith in society either, but at the end of the night at least i can sleep knowing i tried.

Broken ribs aren't that important as you are trying to save the person.
