This story is touching as even in the face of evil-goodness prevailed as this nurse provided CPR to the ISIS member during the recent Paris bombing.
Amazing footage from the recent Paris attacks showing the moment a Parisian nurse tried to save the life of a man who was badly injured in the cafe attack only to realize that he was the suicide bomber.
In hospitals, the survival rate from cardiac arrest is 24%; outside hospitals, where immediate CPR and defibrillator use are much less common, it's about 6%. (http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2015/11/01/cpr-training-update/74594704/)
So why don't more people attempt CPR?
