A great story from Western Australian of a teenage son that successfully revived his father. After suffering a suspected heart attack, Prospect Hill resident John Archdall collapsed to the ground and stopped breathing. Thankfully, it was his 15 year old son, Dylan, who without prior instruction of CPR, came to the rescue and began performing the life saving actions. Dylan with prompts from 000 operators, performed CPR for up to 15 minutes on his dad until paramedics arrived and took over. John had since made a full recovery and has praised his son’s efforts and highlighted importance of learning how to perform CPR. Full Story.
