ITV West Country (Bristol?) this evening in the 6pm, 7pm and 10 pm news - a piece about a Bristol Bus driver who saved a passengers's life a couple of weeks back.  Know friends and contacts involved - I understand it does not go onto replay - can anyone grab a video?

James Mills save the life of Rachel Jay who had serious epileptic seizures on the bus he was driving.



Some members who've attended events such as TravelWatch SouthWest may feel (rightly) that they've seen James before.  If I can find a video link of viewable quality, I will follow up with that.

Congratulations to James on taking the action he did; very proud of him.  Shockingly, the interview / piece was followed up by data that suggests that more people would look on that offer help (due  to ignorance of hat to do or fear of getting it wrong) in circumstances such as James found himself in.   I'm sure that a far higher proportion of bus drivers would help, but nevertheless massive "thank you" to James.
