SIX seconds could save a life thanks to a new video to raise heart attack awareness.
The six-second video from St John Ambulance aims to teach people how to recognise a heart attack and what simple First Aid can be done.
Mark Farmer, regional director for St John Ambulance in the South East, said: "Six seconds is all it takes to learn how to recognise a heart attack.
"It could be the most important six seconds of your life and someone else's."
In the UK, around 92,000 people suffer heart attacks each year and one third die as a result.
The symptoms to look out for are:
• Chest pain
• A weak or rapid pulse
• Pale skin
• Excessive sweating
After which it is important to call 999, sit down, chew aspirin and take any prescribed angina medicine.
