"In one famous case, lifeguards were resuscitating a victim, but instead of breathing, they were saying, "breath, breath" as they did in practice."

So famous, apparently, I can't find any links to it.

If anyone has a screencap from Oregon Trail with "Rub salt in the wound" it would fit in well here.

Re Anne of Green Gables, ipecac being administered to croupy child - take a look here.. http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-ipecac.htm

Turns out that the protocol change re ipecac and croup happened in 2005. As Anne Shirley is doing this before WW1, the 19th century protocol,that it was the thing to do, would have held sway. Trope averted due to point in time?

Maybe someone responsible for the main page could update?

Should we take out the Examples and turn this into an Index page? After all, there are all pages for the specific problems that come up from Worst Aid; this is kind of redundant.
