300 pupils from Bromsgrove Prep School learn life-saving skills on Restart a Heart Day

Bromsgrove Editorial 18th Oct, 2018

AROUND 300 pupils from Bromsgrove Prepatory School learnt vital life-saving skills as part of national Restart a Heart Day on Tuesday, writes Ryan Hesketh.

The session was organised and run by parent and paramedic Lady Sham Porter.

The children were taught basic CPR using dummies and it is hoped the training could enable them to save lives in future.

Lady Porter was supported by Jeff Doak from the police service in the morning and Dr Nick Crosbie during the afternoon.

According to British Heart Foundation statistics, there are over 30,000 cardiac arrests outside of hospital in the UK every year but the survival rate is lower than one in ten.

However with CPR training these students now have the chance of raising these odds and helping more survive.
