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.
