Jersey is 'the top heart attack aware' place in Britain

Jersey is 'one of the most heart attack aware places in Britain' due to the availability of public defibrillators.

St John Ambulance say there are now 97 "electric shock" machines in the island's shops, offices and businesses.

"Every minute a heart doesn't beat, the chance of survival falls by 10%" said Commander Nigel Truscott.

The public machines, which help to get the heart pumping again, have already been used to save lives in Jersey, he said.
