A Monmouthshire mother has spoken of how basic first aid training helped her save fitting stranger's life
Rachel Norman, who is from Magor, was enjoying a holiday at Universal Studios, Florida with her husband and two children last month when they came across a man who had collapsed.
“We were on our way out after a day in the park when we saw a young man on the floor,” said the 42-year-old.
Mrs Norman then walked towards a crowd gathering around the man, and checked the man’s airway which was “exceptionally laboured”.
She also noticed the man’s colour was rapidly changing from pink to blue.
“It looked as though someone was trying to perform chest compressions," she said.
"So I approached the group and asked if I could be of any assistance.
“The man looked as though he was fitting.
“His family explained he had no previous history of epilepsy but due to his rapidly changing colour, I made the decision to put him in the recovery position.”
She added: “After a while, the man began to regain his colour and while disorientated at first, he gradually became more responsive.”
