In conversation with Lancashire’s County Councillor John Fillis that bridged the political divide to save a mans life.
Interestingly he noted how all his friends and colleagues felt obsolete being ill equipped to respond to this life threatening event.
County Councillor Fillis a retired professional nurse with in excess of thirty five years experience explains that with a small amount of effort and knowledge you can make the difference between life and death for your family, friends and colleagues.
Happily John and an Officer of the Council were able to maintain the circulation of oxygenated blood to the brain and vital organs, though officially dead for over forty minutes, when the ambulance arrived and upon to transfer to hospital they managed to revive him.
So County Councillor Fillis is now a much respected member of the chamber on both sides and in this video he recalls the story and provides great advice for emergency situations.
