‘Learn about first aid’
A DAD who saved his baby son’s life using newly acquired first aid skills is urging others to learn.
Alec Brown, 29, put the skills he had learned into action when his eight-month-old son Ruaridh suddenly stopped breathing as he sat in his high chair ready for lunch at the family’s home on Mull.
Having called an ambulance he carried out CPR and after a brief time his son was sick and started to cry.The incident this month came weeks after Mr Brown attended first aid training in Oban.
Mr Brown said: “I can’t recommend strongly enough that people take the time to learn how to do even basic first aid.”
