Thousands of lives could be saved: read on....
The figures are just shocking:
12-15 young people under the age of 30 die every week in the UK due to a sudden cardiac arrest, (SCA.) Of those 12-15: SEVEN of those deaths occur in school.
There are 10-14 cardiac related incidents in schools across the country on a weekly basis, but having a defibrillator on the school premises is still not a legal requirement and less than 10% of schools in the country have one.
Without immediate treatment from a defibrillator, 80% of SCA victims will die.
Many public workshops have been held last year, with many more planned for 2018 at various events, schools, clubs, shopping centres and out on the street, to show the "ordinary person" how to perform CPR.
