That's why I posted the actual Court ruling (follow-up post) as the news articles are interpreting it so its best to go to the source. I haven't read the entire Court ruling yet, so will defer any comment.

The concern, of course, is what is accepted as medical training - probably recognized first aid courses like AHA or Red Cross, but not to exceed the level of training (which s emphasized in such classes anyway). However, would an in-water rescue or assist be considered a 'medical emergency'? The first action would, of course, be to summon a lifeguard or other rescue professional, but what if there is no one else? What if your buddy who needs the help? Appears you'd be liable if you don't help and liable if you do. So am going to read the ruling...
