Unconscious / Fainting

If you come across an unconscious person, you should help revive the person as soon as possible. First you must call for help, and while awaiting help you may, if the person is breathing, sprinkle cold water (do not splash water on the face (which could choke him/her). If it is simple fainting the cold water on the face is usually sufficient to stimulate the nerves and revive the person.
