“They had to shock me six times before my heart started beating again – they just wouldn’t give up. I’d be dead without St John.”
Jo was fast asleep when early one morning she had a cardiac arrest. Her little boy Lachie found her and then alerted her husband who immediately called 1-1-1.
Minutes later paramedics arrived on the scene and for 20 excruciating minutes, Jo's husband Andy watched as paramedics worked to save Jo's life.
Thanks to the work of quick thinking paramedics and the generous support of donors, Jo received the help she needed and made a full recovery.
