MAN SAVED AFTER SWALLOWING FISH
When South Western Ambulance Service crews were called to Boscombe Pier, Bournemouth they had no idea what they would find when they got there. Their only information was that a man had started choking and had now stopped breathing. With the first clinician on scene in less than two minutes, friends directed the crew along the dimly-lit pier, where another friend was already performing CPR, as directed by the calm emergency medical dispatcher on the line from the 999 control room.
