Given that the survival rate for someone after receiving CPR from a bystander is 2%, rising to only 22% if done in-hospital by trained medical personnel, I don't believe this.
I agree. For one, the chance of his surviving is not as high. For two, unless they're unaware that you were the one trying to CPR him, they'd be taking your information down for possible court action later on. Hopefully no one finds out you failed or his family could be after you.
There was a Resuscitation Specialist on NPR the other day who said that CPR survival rates without complications are less than 2% and survival at all is less than 10%. If he really did say that to you, Asshole of the Year.
