Restart A Heart Day: 18 October 2016
Time: Whenever suits YOU
Where: In your school hall, gym or classroom
I learnt CPR in one of my lessons at school. That lesson had a massive impact on my life.
I was sitting next to my dad on the bed, and suddenly he fell to the floor. I didn’t know what to do and my mind was panicking.
Then I remembered what my teacher had taught me and I started doing CPR. I called the ambulance and cradled the phone between my neck and my ear. My arms were aching. I was sweating. But I kept on doing CPR.
Dad is recovering in hospital now, I go to see him every day.
I’ve since found out that the British Heart Foundation is trying to get every school child in the country to learn CPR. And Restart a Heart Day is the biggest training yet.
100,000 people learning CPR skills. Imagine how many lives could be saved as a result.
That lesson has had a massive impact on our family’s life. If not for that lesson I wouldn’t still have my dad.
Thank you for helping train even more people in CPR – it’s so important.
