At Ely Cathedral, James Salmons was awarded a Spotted in Ely Community Star Award for saving his wife’s life after suffering a Cardiac Arrest.
Saving her life once is worthy of a Star alone, but James had to do it twice, a year apart and on both occasions, the paramedics on scene told mum of 2 Charlotte, his wife, that she is alive because of his actions.
James understood the signs of Charlotte’s arrest and with training, he had received 18 months earlier was able to perform the life-saving endeavour.
Today, James was proud to show off his award from us and the one received last year from The British Heart Foundation on Twitter saying ” So privileged to receive recognition for my actions. Hold that special person a little tighter tonight as you just never know #CPR. Thank you to The British Heart Foundation andSpottedInEly”
We have 2 more Stars being presented in the next couple of weeks, one of which will be a total surprise with plans for another 2, maybe 3 in April.
