  • Aberdeen secondary pupils learn CPR

Second year pupils from Aberdeen's Lochside Academy had the chance to learn life-saving CPR this week, thanks to help from local St John Scotland volunteers.

The team taught bystander CPR skills to nearly 170 pupils, giving them the skills and confidence to know what to do in an emergency.

With around 70 people having a cardiac arrest each week in Scotland, knowing how to perform CPR is a vital skill, and one that can save lives. As part of the national Save a Life for Scotland campaign, St John Scotland is working alongside other charities and emergency services to help half a million Scots learn CPR by 2020. These north-east pupils are the latest to join the nearly 340,000 others who have been trained over the past few years, helping Scotland become CPR ready!
