Sam Mangoro suffered a cardiac arrest during a PE lesson. He would have died within minutes without help. But his school had just bought a defibrillator and teachers shocked his heart into beating again. Now Sam is campaigning to get defibrillators in all schools. He's been speaking to Kerry Swain.
After suffering a cardia arrest at school, Sam Mangoro is now raising money for All Heart to provide life-saving defibrillators and training in schools so more lives can be saved in an emergency.
