Youngsters learn how to restart a heart at Mansfield Town, in pictures

Youngsters have been taught how to start a heart at Mansfield's One Call Stadium, in hopes that one day it could save a life.

Twenty-three young people aged 5 to 15 took part and also learnt how to eat health and sampled fruit. Premier League Primary Stars coordinator Jordan Ferrer said “It’s one of those things where knowing first aid, everyone should know. No matter where you are you could be called upon to help in an emergency situation, the more people that know [how to do it] the more lives can be saved. We’ve read about cases where it’s the adult whose needed help, so getting even the most basic information across to the children is something we felt passionate about."

Youngsters were showed how to put someone into the recovery position, do chest compressions and perform CPR.
