A 10-year-old Mateusz Jarantowski from Poznań saved his uncle's life! The boy completed the CPR for Schools training organised by the GOCC Foundation. Boy's school, 18th Primary School in Poznań, held a special event to celebrate Matusz's outstanding bravery.

The accident happened during a family dinner, when Mateusz's uncle, a 30-year-old man, suddenly felt sick and could not catch his breath. The boy immediately called an ambulance and administered CPR. He did not hesitate and knew exactly how to act. Mateusz completed two CPR courses, one of which was our free CPR for Schools training


18th Primary School in Poznań joined the CPR for Schools programme in 2006, when it was first announced by the GOCC Foundation. The programme's school coordinator is Ms. Katarzyna Karnicka. 


Both Mateusz and Ms. Karnicka, the coordiantor of the CPR for Schools programme, received medals from Jurek Owsiak as a symbol of gratitude for their admirable attitude.
