Staying Alive Can Actually Save Lives

Londoner Bob Attewell recently used the Bee Gees song ”Stayin Alive” to save another man’s life. Bob was putting air into his tires at a gas station when he saw fellow customer Jimmy Smith fall to the ground because of a heart attack. Bob rushed over to Jimmy and began performing CPR while humming ”Stayin Alive.” He performed CPR for 20 minutes until medics arrived and took over. The song’s beat is the same as how many chest compressions are needed to keep a heart going. Jimmy is recovering in the hospital.
