Rumour File: Staff at local shopping centre complain after paramedics teaching CPR ‘impact customers’
Paramedics teaching CPR at Highpoint Shopping Centre for Restart a Heart Day were asked by security to take up a smaller space at a walkway at the centre, after staff at a nearby store complained.
Have a Heart told the Rumour File paramedics were at the shopping centre showing people how to do CPR and use a defibrillator and they were asked to move on multiple times.
Ambulance Victoria confirmed to 3AW Breakfast staff at one shop complained to security, saying the activities were “impacting on customers”.
Following the display, paramedics apologised and gave staff at the shop heart-shaped chocolates.
Ambulance Victoria thanked the shopping centre for its support in allowing us a space to teach this important life-saving skill.
