St John Youth showing how it's done

Ian Henderson |

Over 70 St John Youth Cadets and Leaders invaded Queenstown's Earnslaw Park on Sunday - for a good cause.

The Youth members were taking part in a CPR 'flash mob', giving the startled members of the public a quick three minute show of how to do CPR at 3.30pm.

The flash mob, in conjunction with Laerdal, was captured by St John Youth member Chris Howe, and is available on YouTube.

The Cadets and Leaders were in Queenstown as part of the St John National Youth Festival and Competitions, which finished on Monday.  The overall winners of the Competitions section were:

Champion Individual: Johann Go (Central Region)
Champion Team: Abbey Marshall, Keesha van Stijn, Bailey Hoar, Caitlin Wright, Jonothan Clayton
Champion Region: Northern Region
