Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

HELP Ricky Ni­col A TAXI driver fought to save Eric af­ter he had his heart at­tack.

Ricky Ni­col was pick­ing up a fare close to the Echo Arena when he spot­ted him. The 32-year-old, trained in first aid and CPR, said: “His friend was pan­ick­ing, so I stepped in. I told his friend to call the am­bu­lance as I started CPR.

“I didn’t even re­alise that it was Eric Bris­tow un­til his friend told me. I’m into my darts but he was un­recog­nis­able. I’d do the same for any­one though.

“It’s a mo­ment that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I did the best I could but it wasn’t enough. I’m dev­as­tated.”
