    Well,i did my good deed yesterday. By going over,and getting someone up off of the floor yesterday afternoon. First thing i did after seeing the immediate situation. I let her know exactly how we're gonna get her up off of the floor. Thats when i got behind her and wrapped my arms around her lower body,and stood up with her.then i walked her over to the sofa..

    Always a good idea to ask the person if they need help first. Some people will get pretty out of control or angry if they don't want help or to be touched.

    Consent must be given before aid is attempted, unless consent is implied .(meaning that a reasonable person would want help if they could ask, generally used when a person is unconscious.)

    Good work. Hopefully it wasn't anything too serious.
