A 14-year-old boy who had a heart attack while playing football SAVED by quick-thinking friends who remembered a CPR lesson from school


A teenage boy who’d gone into cardiac arrest was brought back to life by his friends, who were able to perform CPR thanks to a First Aid class they’d remembered from school.
Joel Massey, 14, had a heart attack and suddenly collapsed while playing football with his three friends Sam Seaborn, Rhodri Whittaker and Ben Stevens, all 16, near his home in Ledbury, Hertfordshire.
Joel’s heart stopped for ten minutes, but thanks to his friends’ quick thinking, he is expected to make a full recovery. I have learned First Aid and think everyone should as you can see from this story it can save a life
