No doubt, I would immediately render aid to the victim.
Uncontrolled hemorrhage in the neck can be a very tricky to control the bleeding. Especially if the assailant left the knife stuck inside his neck. If any major vessels such as the internal or external jugular vein, common carotid artery, or either the subclavian artery or subclavian vein is damaged, the victim could bleed to death in less time than any EMS units could arrive.
EMS Truth #3: "All bleeding stops... eventually."

A liberal coward huh? You cant shoot the dude before he commits the crime because you dont know he is going to do it. You might be able to shoot the dude during the commission of the crime, but probably not as it happened so fast. You cant shoot the dude after the crime because he is now fleeing the scene and does not pose a threat to you. So you have a matter of seconds to draw and shoot a threat that isnt even threatening you and you may not be aware of. I could see a real good lawyer hemming you up for shooting the dude and he wasnt a threat to you. Until the laws are loosened and we dont need to be in fear of defending others, there is no good shot and anyone saying you are a "liberal coward" must be real smug sitting behind his computer and playing COD on the Playstation.

Calling 911 immediately is a must, assisting the stabbing victim and 'watching the door' for a return of the mental deranged dirtbag would also be on my mind.
There is no way that something like that could be prevented, much like the four cops shot in WA a while back...it happens before the 'brain synapses' begin firing.
