Restart a Heart Day – Monday 16 October

 

Restart a Heart Day aims to raise awareness of the need for all people to learn CPR and the use of automated external defibrillators to save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest.


Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death, with an estimated 15,000 people suffering a cardiac arrest in Australia every year. Receiving early CPR can increase the odds of surviving a cardiac arrest by a factor of five.


Paramedics Australasia is proud to support this initiative in Australia and New Zealand along with The British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross, St John Ambulance and Yorkshire Ambulance Service we will be working together to help train as many children and young people as possible to learn to save a life and make every child a Lifesaver.

Metropolitan Tikhon Issues Statement on the Tragedy in Las Vegas


SYOSSET, NY [OCA]


His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon, Primate of the Orthodox Church in America, issued the following statement in response to the tragic events in Las Vegas last night. The statement reads:


“On behalf of the hierarchs, clergy and faithful of the Orthodox Church in America, we offer sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas. It always brings great sorrow to hear of such senseless killings in the supposedly civilized world. Our hearts ache for the families and friends of the victims and we offer fervent prayers for the repose of the souls of those whose lives were tragically cut short. We pray for the victims and the grieving families and ask that God send down upon them the spirit of peace and consolation. We also offer thanksgiving for the timely and heroic actions of the first responders. Finally we offer our prayers for the city of Las Vegas and all of those who have been effected by these tragic events. We ask that all Orthodox Christians remember the victims and their families in their prayers.”
