Air ambulance paramedic Neil Flowers has taught children from a Bury St Edmunds school vital life-saving skills.
The critical care paramedic, who works for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, popped into Moreton Hall Preparatory School on Monday to show pupils aged from seven to 13 how to help an unconscious casualty.
He also answered questions about his job, with the children asking about the worst accident he had attended.
Simon Head, headmaster of Moreton Hall Prep School, said: “It was brilliant.
“Potentially they learned how to save a life.”

He said he hoped Mr Flowers, from Woodbridge, would return to the school in the future for another session. “It’s the kind of thing that should be on the curriculum,” he said. “Every child should know how to deal with an unconscious casualty.”
