Robert Underwood, a parent of a 16-year old girl who died of Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome, is campaigning to get defibrillators in all schools.

With a defibrillator to hand, a patient has a considerably greater chance of survival.
It's estimated that more than 95 percent of cardiac arrest victims die before reaching the hospital.
