Highlight

A warrantless search of a dwelling for the purpose of investigation may be upheld under the emergency doctrine when the primary intent of the investigation is to render aid or assistance to someone in a dangerous situation.
An emergency doctrine search requires that: (1) the police have reasonable grounds to believe there is an emergency at hand and there is an immediate need for police assistance for the protection of life or property; (2) the search must not be motivated primarily by intent to arrest and seize evidence; (3) there must be some reasonable basis, approximating probable cause, to associate the emergency with the area or place to be searched.
