CPR performed to Bee Gee’s Stayin’ Alive in Leeds station

Yorkshire Ambulance Flash Mob

Yorkshire Ambulance community responders have surprised commuters at Leeds rail station by taking part in a flash mob.

On 18 October, service staff performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on dummies simultaneously to the music of Bee Gee’s hit Stayin’ Alive to help raise awareness of CPR.

Members of the public were invited to join in and learn CPR skills.

Recent statistics released by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) suggests that many people in Yorkshire and the Humber are reluctant to perform CPR in an emergency.

76% of people studied said they would ‘not feel confident’ performing CPR on a family member or loved one, whilst 45% said they would be deterred by the ‘fear of causing more harm than good’.
