There’s a fantastic article in the Mirror sharing a story of a group of guys on a stag do to Bournemouth and whilst they were karting the bride to be’s father had a heart attack!
The story doesn’t currently sound too fantastic, but what happened after makes it a story to learn from and shows how important the message from the British Heart Foundation is trying to get across, in their campaign a Nation of Lifesavers.
The best man Michael Scott put together a brilliant stag do to Bournemouth which included outdoor race karting and whilst they were in the middle of the race, he watched John Statham, father of the bride’s kart veer off the track, through the tyre wall and straight into a tree, John had had a heart attack.
Quick thinking by Michael (best man) and Stewart Jones (a former paramedic), issued CPR until the paramedics arrived saving John’s life and he was able to walk his daughter down the Aisle just three weeks later.
Luckily, the best man Michael, three weeks earlier completed a free British Heart Foundation CPR training course at his local fire station.
