PUPILS at a Sheffield school didn’t waste any time telling MP Nick Clegg how important every second is when it comes to saving a life.
Deputy Prime Minister Mr Clegg, MP for Sheffield Hallam, visited St Marie’s Catholic Primary on Fulwood Road, Fulwood, to find out more about the British Heart Foundation and the Resuscitation Council UK’s work to promote emergency life support teaching in schools.
Children and teachers explained the training could mean the difference between life and death - because it means taking action in the vital minutes before professional help arrives.
They also showed the MP what to do if someone has a heart attack - and he got stuck in and had a go himself using a dummy.
Mr Clegg said: “It was inspiring to see young people learning such valuable life-saving skills.”
