Life saving honour for hotel supervisor in Glasgow

A Glasgow hotel supervisor is to receive a national live saving honour for helping to save the life of a hotel diner who collapsed with a heart attack.

Kerenn Grant, a supervisor at the 15-bedroom Burnside Hotel on East Kilbride Road, Glasgow, battled alongside an off duty fire man, Peter Doran, of Droitwich, to keep the heart attack victim alive until emergency services arrived.

Together they administered cardiac pulmonary resuscitation and kept the man's airways open.

Dick Wilkinson, secretary of the Royal Humane Society, praised both Grant and Doran, as he announced that they will be presented with the Society's Resuscitation certificate.

"They fought a life-and-death battle to bring him back from the brink of death," he said.

"But for their efforts he would almost certainly have died. They richly deserve the awards they are to receive. Put simply, they were the right people in the right place at the right time."
