Someone not adequately trained in proper first aid procedures can cause more damage with the best of intent if they do not know what they are doing.
Prime example: I responded to a full cardiac arrest (heart not beating) and the person on scene who "knew" CPR was doing compressions at the level of the xiphoid process (lower chest/upper abdomen) and not the sternum. This doesn't help circulation, and while the patient would probably have not survived regardless, this was more or less another nail in the coffin.
