Zenith holidays, which runs a variety of mainly activity-based holidays, now has all its resort staff take a Heartstart Course with the British Heart Foundation which teaches people how to keep someone alive until professional help arrives.

Why don’t more holiday companies do this – especially those which offer childcare?
And just in case you haven’t seen it yet – here’s the brilliant Vinnie Jones CPR video which shows how compressions should be done to the beat of the Bee Gees’ Staying’ Alive.
