He might not be dead, doing nothing is the right thing to do because you could make him disabled if you move him improperly. So maybe they were just waiting for the ambulance.

Unless one had training in trauma, best thing is to talk to the victim in a calm reassuring voice until emt shows... January of this year I was electrocuted, and people ok the job site just talked to me, flash blindness so I couldn't see the damage, it helped a lot more than people realized.. I was I. Shock but still coherent. That in itself may have saved me as noone touched me. In 95 when I got shot, again, same thing, kind words help sooo much. Walking to a trauma scene saying,"holy !!!" Can and will most likely create more havoc...

Again. Just my $.02...

Man Crashes, Dies While Learning To Ride Motorcycle

POSTED: Tuesday, September 6, 2011

HOUSTON -- A motorcyclist died Monday when he crashed while learning to ride his new Harley Davidson, police said.

Investigators said Juan Carlos Villalobos, 40, was riding his new motorcycle in the parking lot of the Dilston House Apartments in the 7900 block of Westheimer Road at 3:15 p.m. when he lost control and hit a parked Buick Park Avenue.

Villalobos then hit a brick wall next to a gate and suffered head trauma, Houston police said.

Villalobos died at Memorial Hermann Hospital.

Hopefully it's not the same person.

You're right. I assumed he was not because a fatal head injury at the speeds attainable in a parking lot on a harley suggests he was not wearing a helmet.
