Helping auto accident victims
In California, when an auto accident involves an injured victim who's life is in
danger, should the police provide emergency medical care while waiting
for an ambulance? For example, if a limb is lost and the patient is
bleeding profusely, should the police do something, like apply a
tourniquet, to prevent the patient from "bleeding out"? What if they
don't? Thank you.

It sounds like this is either a homework question asking about a
theoretical situation. Alternately, you might be asking about a
specific situation where the police didn't perform as you expected and
you're hoping to find information about what police officers are
required to do as a matter of law and policy. Please tell me more
about the information you're looking for? Thanks.
