CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Spark of Life - S5-E18

Corrected entry: In the initial view of the drowning victim, we see an EMT performing CPR on the child. Later in the show, they say it was recently her fifth birthday. The EMT, however, was performing CPR with two hands. On a child of her age, you would only use one hand to perform CPR. Brass also says that they're "just going through the motions", but the EMT would most likely out of habit do it correctly. It makes no sense that a trained lifesaving professional would perform a lifesaving treatment incorrectly, even if he knew it would be ineffective anyway.

Correction: I've been on two health and saftey courses and on both I was told to use both hands whilst performing CPR, even on children.
