Today’s Good Samaritan story features a confident young man from South Wales who used his St. John Ambulance training to save his little brother, just a few hours after passing a first aid course.
You can read the Daily Mail story about James and Harri Reed here:
James sums up perfectly what we hear so many of our own students say when they too step up to respond:
“I had been shown what to do that day but I never thought I'd have to use it so quickly.
'I could see Harri was choking so I just did what I'd been shown and it worked really well.”
We agree completely with Keith Dunn, chief executive of St John Ambulance in Wales, when he points out you’re never too young to learn these easy skills.
Well done, James!
Ready to take that first aid class you’ve always thought about but never quite found the time? We can help!
