Russell Baker suffered a heart attack outside a cafe in Chatham a year ago. But he was lucky the owner had been a nurse, and was able to help him when his heart stopped.
What was unusual about Russell's situation was that he was in his early twenties, and exercised regularly. He never thought he would be someone who would have heart problems.
Now, Russell is spreading the word about the importance of heart health to young people. He wants to encourage more people his age and younger to undergo heart screening. Russell's story is the Meridian East Fixers report for January 2013.
