Answer:

According to the Amecican Red Cross Manual found below.
 
If the conscious person is a child or an infant, permission to give care must be obtained from a parent or guardian when one is available. If the condition
is life threatening, permission—or consent—is implied if a parent or guardian is not present. If the parent or guardian is present but does not give consent,
do not give care. Instead, call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number.
