Ringway Hertfordshire hero saves gentleman’s life using CPR learnt from first aid course at work

Paul Wheeler, employee of leading highways maintenance company, Ringway, recently saved the life of a gentleman during his routine daily lunch break in St Albans.

Paul, who works as a Street Lighting Engineer on the Hertfordshire contract, said: "I just went to the bakers to grab some lunch and saw lots of people huddled around someone on the ground. I checked to see if the gentleman was breathing using a procedure I had learnt on my first aid course. He wasn't, and I'm glad I knew what to do. I started CPR whilst someone called for an ambulance and I continued CPR until the paramedics took over.

 

“This is the second time I've administered CPR to a member of public and although the incident left me slightly shaken, I would not hesitate to carry out this again thanks to the training I've been provided.”

 

Ringway praised the employee for saving the life of the gentleman.

 

Kevin Carrol, Ringway Hertfordshire Divisional Manager, said: “We are all so proud of Paul and what he managed to do. This shows the importance of first aid courses and is why we decided to offer these to our employees as you never know when the training will become useful.”
