Stayin’ Alive – Man saves heart attack victim with CPR singin’ Bee Gees hit

The 52-year-old Martin Wintersgill saved a pensioner (Micky McDonald) who suffered heart attack in a pub. He heard calling for help and he suddenly tried to perform a CPR, even if he never did.

Fortunately, Martin saw an advertising launched by The British Heart Foundation, where the football player and actor Vinnie Jones explaines resuscitation techniques at the rhythm of Bee Gees hit “Stayin’ Alive” (1977).

Martin remembered the principle manouvers to do in case of cardiac arrest and he immediatly tried to save Micky singing “Stayin’ Alive”.

“We got him out, laid him on his back and I’d got it stuck in my head that advert about Stayin’ Alive. I was there about ten minutes. There was somebody else on the phone talking to them on 999 asking ‘is he breathing’ and it just went on. Then the paramedics arrived and I said ‘is that me done?’ and they said ‘no, carry on’ and I could feel his ribs snapping. I just kept going and going.”

In the end, Mickey arrived to the hospital with four broken ribbs, but alive.
