There must be an Asda, and they're checking out my heart
The devices which help restart the heart after a cardiac-type incident, are now in the stores so that anyone can deliver electric shocks to someone in difficulty.
Not sure if this indicates that Scunthorpe's Asdas are a hotspot for this sort of thing - as if heart attacks are a daily worry for the store - or if it suggests that the town is in particularly poor health.
Then of course, the danger of falling into the wrong hands, and people giddygoating with it.
They've been provided through a team up between the supermarket, British Heart Foundation and East Midlands Ambulance Service.
EMAS community response manager Steve Pratten said: “For every minute someone goes into cardiac arrest before paramedics arrive, the chance of survival drops by 10 per cent."
“That doesn't mean there’s no chance after 10 minutes – good CPR increases the chances and every case is different – but defibrillators can make a huge difference while an ambulance is on its way.”
We look forward to someone being an amusing news story after they try and cook some Pop Tarts with the medical equipment.
