St John Ambulance staff save York mans life

St John Ambulance staff save York mans life

5:53am 21st December 2009

The grateful parents of a 14 year old boy from York say St John Ambulance staff saved their son's life.

A routine health check in the Coppergate shopping centre flagged-up a potentially life-threatening condition.

George Groom had a free blood-pressure tests which showed it was sky-high.

George and his family were referred to York District Hospital where it was discovered that George's aorta was too narrow.

That mean his blood flow was restricted, putting a strain on his heart.

He had keyhole surgery at the L.G.I, which was successful.

George's family have told Minster FM "We simply cannot thank St John Ambulance enough. I shudder to think what might have happened had we not been alerted."  

George added "I owe them my life".
