Posted on Friday 21st June 2013

Congratulations to College of Medical and Dental Sciences students Jaskaran Mavi and Jasveer Poonian who received a West Midlands Ambulance Service Chief Officers Commendation for saving their friend’s life.

Jaskaran and Jasveer recognised that their friend and fellow student, Rajan Chaudhry, had suffered a cardiac arrest when he collapsed during a night out and quickly started resuscitation. Paramedics arriving on scene continued advanced life support before Rajan was taken to hospital.

At the Awards Ceremony, West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) acknowledged that the intervention of Jaskaran and Jasveer saved Rajan’s life.

Rajan was discharged from hospital and assisted WMAS Chief Executive Anthony Marsh in presenting Jasveer and Jaskaran with their Commendation to recognise their prompt actions on that night.
