From this story.
In short, on April 12, 2000, Bill Camp had a heart attack at Commerica Park during a Detroit Tigers game. He died as a result of that heart attack.
His widow is now suing the Tigers (and other parties) over the death. In short, she claims that the team did not train its employees to handle medical emergencies properly.
Now, then, am I responsible for a medical emergency (such as a heart attack – which I have no control over) that occurs in my house? To what degree are the Tigers really responsible for this? I would think that if someone comes into my house and suffers a medical condition, then they can’t sue me if I don’t have the training to help them.[sup]*[/sup] Or does everyone who has someone on their property have to know how to care for injuries or else be subject to a lawsuit? Or is it different because Commerica Park is a public place?
[sup]*[/sup]As it turns out, I am a former EMT, but even so, in a case of a heart attack, for example, there is darn little I can do aside from making the patient comfortable, administering oxygen (if I have it) and getting an ambulance ASAP.
