Scenario Overview:
I walk outside my place of work to find someone has collapsed and not responding, there is a crowed starting to form around the casualty. I am unaware of how long they have been unconscious. Later they suddenly start breathing.
First Aider Easy
How the scenario should progress:
Casualty is found unconscious and breathing while later on during the scenario they are unconscious not breathing ( UNB). The First Aider, which is me, is to move all bystanders away.
