How to save a life

ALMOST 60 per cent of people who witness a heart attack are unable to help the victim because they do not know basic CPR.

According to statistics released by Malaga’s College of Physicians, there were 147 cases in the province last year where people were unable to assist due to a lack of knowledge.

Many of the attacks took place in the victim’s home but 13 per cent were in the street.

In response to the findings the College has now launched a CPR course.

Director Andrés Buforn is keen to stress the need to act quickly in what can be a life or death situation.

“The response of the first person on the scene is very important.

Performing basic CPR can gain precious time,” he explained.
