Too many children are dying from sudden death syndrome says MP

The family of a 16-year-old girl from Redditch who died suddenly from an underlying heart condition have pledged to donate defibrillators to local schools in her memory.

Charlotte Prentice died in 2010 from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome – a heart condition that kills around 11 under-35s a week.

Today her family organised for West Midlands Ambulance Service to provide First Aid training for people in the town.

Redditch MP, Karen Lumley, wants Britain to have defibrillators in all its schools.
