Mum performs life-saving CPR in Upminster high street – weeks after first aid training.
A heroic shop worker brought a woman back from the dead by performing CPR in a packed high street – just weeks after passing a first aid course.
Mum-of-two Sue Gilmour had never used her training before, but she was called into action last week when a woman in her 60s collapsed and went into cardiac arrest in Station Road, Upminster.
Sue, who works in the nearby Roomes store, was first on the scene and performed CPR on the woman, who had stopped breathing.
Sue, of Moor Lane, Cranham, said she never expected she would use her training to save somebody’s life.
“I ran over and saw the woman lying on the floor with blood coming out of her nose,” she recalled. “She was on her side but then she stopped breathing and didn’t have vital signs.”
