Incredible, huh? How lucky that the delivery guy knew CPR!
But here at the Red Cross we don’t want to just bank on luck. We want to educate 5 million people in Citizen CPR (aka “hands-only”) before the end of 2011 so that there’s a better chance your delivery guy (or neighbor, or friend, or hairdresser, etc.) will have the skills to help save your life.
It’s not full CPR certification, but performing hands-only, Citizen CPR is better than doing nothing at all. And if more people are empowered to help save a life (without worrying about mouth-to-mouth contact), that’s a good thing.
