A person at the scene of an emergency who knows that another person is exposed to or has suffered grave physical harm must reasonably assist the person to the extent that he or she can without danger or peril to self or others. A person who violates this requirement is guilty of a petty misdemeanor.
A person who gratuitously provides emergency care, advice, or assistance at the scene of an emergency or during transit to a medical care facility is not liable for any civil damages as a result of any act or omission unless the person acts in a willful and wanton or reckless manner in providing the care, advice, or assistance.
This immunity does not apply to a person rendering emergency care, advice, or assistance during the course of regular employment and receiving compensation, or who is expecting to receive compensation for rendering the care, advice, or assistance (MN Stat. Sec. 604A.01).
