After a three month fundraising and awareness campaign to get over 300 new defibrillators installed across Northern Ireland, ‘mentalist’ David Meade has released a video to help push the total over the finish line.
The video is part of the Henderson Group’s Heart of our Community campaign which will see the installation of the devices outside their SPAR, EUROSPAR and VIVO stores here this year.
The well-known mind reader from Banbridge explains that over 1,400 cardiac arrests occur outside of hospitals in Northern Ireland ever year, and the public should be making moves to learn simple life saving skills including CPR that could help save lives.
It is proven that performing CPR and using a defibrillator device on someone who has suffered a cardiac arrest increases their chances of survival by 10%.
