Choking, broken bones, heart attacks - this quartet of Paston College students now knows how to deal with such emergencies safely, after completing a three-hour St John Ambulance course in essential first aid.
The group undertook the course as part of the North Walsham sixth-form college's Employability Skills Award and have learned life-saving skills including bandaging, mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and heart massage.
Several students commented that they felt more prepared for going to university, work, and living independently. They are the first to complete the course with many more expected to follow over the coming months.
