Family who lost son to cardiac arrest gets youngsters screened

The family of a 26-year old who died of sudden arrhythmic death syndrome is organising screenings to help get youngsters checked out for any issues.

Pardeep Nagra died in 2008. He was a fit and healthy youngster with no previous heart complications.

We think sports clubs and schools should give all children and young adults the opportunity to have an ECG. If kids were screened early while still at school they could be looked after and monitored throughout their lives. It's only a simple test which could benefit so many families and save them from this heartbreak.
