In this scenario one of the guys should have secured the victim’s head in his hands while the other carefully laid him flat on the ground. It is critical that they move in unison, as the slightest head movement can cause paralysis or death. Once he is laid flat, the first guy should continue to hold his head in a stable position and not let the victim move at all. LEAVE THE HELMET ON!!!! The other guy should call 911 and ride out to meet emergency medical workers and guide them back to the victim.
