Paramedic Cliff Medlicott joined members of the community in Redditch today, for a course in basic first aids, set up by the family of a 16-year old girl who died of sudden cardiac arrest.
Charlotte Prentice died suddenly in 2010 from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS) – a heart condition which can kill seemingly healthy young people.
Today the family have organised for West Midlands Ambulance Service to provide free First Aid training in the town.
Cliff says good first aid is essential for keeping the brain oxygenated during a sudden cardiac arrest, and that emergency services should be called immediately.
