If you found yourself in a First Aid emergency, could you step in & help?
If you could learn the critical skills to be able to help save a life, would you?
A few weeks ago, a certified First Aider, trained by Green Cross Global reached out to our Head of Risk & Compliance, Tim Hassall, to tell of a situation he found himself in a few nights before…
The man (who wishes to remain anonymous), tells of how crisis struck after returning from holiday, and how he was able to step in to save a life.
“We were just getting out of the taxi returning from holiday and we have a home for adults with complex needs across the road.
Two of the carers came flying out screaming for help, one of their residents was choking, so I ran in and took control with the taxi driver. I started the abdominal thrusts and back slapping, and anti-choke pump. After what seemed like ages, we cleared the food block and got her breathing again. In-between all that we got the carers to call an ambulance.
Just received a nice thank you card and the carers said the paramedics have said she was minutes away from cardiac arrest.
Bit of a mad one but your training kicked in.
Cheers mate have a good night”
