VICTIMS of cardiac arrest in Gloucestershire have a higher than average chance of survival – but two thirds still do not survive.
Figures released by the British Heart Foundation show your address could determine your chances of living through a witnessed cardiac arrest.
In June, a rate of 33 per cent was recorded in Gloucestershire and Wiltshire compared with just 7.5 per cent in the East Midlands.
Across England, 18.5 per cent of witnessed cardiac arrest casualties attended by paramedics survived to leave hospital.
The charity has launched a campaign featuring ex-footballer Vinnie Jones highlighting the importance of learning CPR.
