New CPR Can Help Survival Rate Triple

This doesn’t directly relate to cycling, but you never know when you might need to do CPR–and knowing how to do it and how to do it properly can help save a life.

Below is a short video to help you brush up on your compression technique, and as the doctor says in the video, you can also take a class from your local Red Cross.
