Are there laws requiring bystanders to provide assistance?
Pretty sad when apathy reaches the point where it's necessary to enact laws requiring bystanders to help people in need of assistance.

I remember in driver's ed, we were taught that if you saw an accident, you had a duty to stop and render what aid you could while you waited for help to arrive. It was taught like it was the law.
This guy deserves something. How you could see two people in need just watch them die is beyond me.

Under what charges? Must a person help in this situation and if so what law compels that person to do so?
