If a person without lawful excuse does an act or omission knowing that act or omission is likely to endanger the life of another and intending to endanger the life of another or being recklessly indifferent.
Imprisonment for up to 15 years is available even for a basic offence.
The above charge can be made out on the same elements where serious harm replaces endangering the life of another. Lastly, the offence can be made out with the element of basic harm.
This charge is difficult to prove. Not only do the prosecution need to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the act or omission was likely to endanger to the life or cause serious harm, (or harm) but they need to prove a second limb that you intended that result.
