Because it's not an FML moment, it's an "I'm fully prepared to take an emergency citation on" moment, and thats awesome!

Because employees at gyms are trained to assist in all kinds of emergencies. Chances are that in a real emergency asking to help would just end up with being in the way. Also, it could cause problems with the gym's insurance. Last but not least, he assumed that everyone in the gym was an idiot, capable of only standing around uselessly, and that he'd have to save the day with his genius CPR skills.

While I can see the bit about the insurance, I disagree on the point about thinking they were all idiots. In a situation like that, it's less "I'm the only person that can save them, I'll play hero here!" and more "if I assume they know what to do and ignore it, there's a chance a person could die." It's not that you assume that everyone else is an idiot, it's just that you recognise the realism that not everyone knows what to do in that situation, and that many/most people (

Hey, that just shows you were prepared. You should've stood up right as you figured it out and been like, "That's how it's done!" and walk off.

This isn't really an FML, but why the heck are people voting that you deserved it? What's wrong with trying to watch out of other peoples' lives?

Its better that he made that mistake then let someone die...nice to know how well you look out for ppl

I've been here. It's slightly embarassing, but definately not FML worthy. A few friends and I were hanging out in a pool late one night, and one of them decided to see how long he could hold his breath at the bottom. While I was swimming, I noticed him down there laying motionless, and immediately grabbed him and pulled him up. When he surfaced, he was just like, "... what are you doing?", so I said "... Oh. I thought you were drowning. Nevermind!"
