|10:45 am - Quick opinion question for Numb3rs fans|
(This is for my "apocafic," which I have finished a first draft of.)
Do we think Charlie does or does not have basic First Aid training? If alone with someone unconscious from an obvious head injury, would he just leave them in whatever position they fell? Or might he know about putting them in the recovery position? Or would he know, but not dare at that point, fearing to aggravate their condition?
(Another thought: Charlie under stress doesn't always think too clearly. Hmmm. Though he did recall some precision training under great stress in "Scan Man," so.)
All thoughts appreciated.
Current Mood: busy
Eeeeee apocafic!!! *boogies*
Charlie strikes me as the conscientious type that would have learned at least basic first aid. Plus, he's a hiking enthusiast, right? So yeah, I see him having a grasp of the fundamentals if nothing else.
Very, very good point about he and Larry being hiking enthusiasts. (Wouldn't it be fun if that came up on the show in connection with a case someday?) That pretty much assures he knows First Aid, I think; I can't really imagine Larry letting him slide without it, even if Charlie *weren't* such a terrifically conscientious person.
Thank you! :)
I think it could be extrapolated that as part of his training (whether formal or at Don's and/or Alan's insistence) to work in the field with Don, some sort of rudimentary first aid training was . . . erm . . . strongly encouraged. :-)
Hmmm, also a good point. :) Looks like we all agree that Charlie probably has training, whether for his work with Don or for his leisure activities, etc.
Ooo love that icon. Swat gear is so sexy.
Charlie has shown himself to think pretty fast on his feet. I can't remember the episode, but the one where the victim was in the hospital, some baddies were coming to finish him off, and Charlie helped the nurse flee with the victim in the hospital bed.
Ring a bell?
So he probably will remember his first aid. Unless the hurt person is Amita. Charlie seems to panic a little more when Amita's in danger.
That would be "The Janus List"--and, interestingly, that is actually referred to in the story. :)
