Over two-hundred youngsters were screened this weekend in Wolverhampton, after the father of a 26-year old man who died from sudden death syndrome, raised over £7,000 to hold the event.
Dalbad Nagra's son, Pardeep, died in 2008 from sudden arrhythmia death syndrome – a condition that kills around 12 youngster each week in the UK.
On Saturday and Sunday, heart charity CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young), tested 200 youngsters with an ECG machine, which looks at the rhythm of the heart.
Sudden arrhythmia death syndrome is fatal without appropriate CPR and life-saving equipment. A defibrillator is normally used, which shocks the heart back into normal rhythm.
The two-day screening took place in Wolverhampton from 23-24 February.
