First aiders at Weymouth's Olympic sailing events are being praised after helping a man suspected of suffering a heart attack.

Volunteers from Red Cross and St John Ambulance went to help the man at the Live Site...in the end the man was discharged without needing hospital treatment.

So far their joint first aid team has treated more than 360 patients since the start of events there.

St John Ambulance spokesman Robert Ashton says this case shows the value of having highly trained  first aiders and a well equipped medical unit sited amongst the crowds.
