Singapore – Man save a life getting CPR instructions over phone
On a Sunday afternoon during Chinese New Year in 2014, business analyst Edwin Huang was tucking into a bowl of beef noodles at an eatery in Seah Street.  Suddenly, he heard a piercing scream coming from the kitchen. He rushed over to find the eatery’s owner on the ground, motionless. Even though he didn’t know cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), he stepped forward anyway and helped save the man’s life.

Yesterday, the 32-year-old was presented with the Survivor Awards Singapore. Mr Huang was at Authentic Hock Lam St Popular Beef Kway Teow when its owner, Mr Tan Han Theng, 63, collapsed. Mr Huang saw that the elderly man had turned purple and had stopped breathing. He told The New Paper that there was utter chaos in the kitchen after Mr Tan collapsed.- See more
