Mecca Bingo Caller Saves a Life

Mecca Bingo caller, Ben Washington, 33, saved the life of a 66-year-old bingo player on the bus ride home from the hall.

Washington was trained in first aid but had never needed to use his skills. Despite this, it was his quick action that saved Shirley. 'He's Ben, my guardian angel,' Shirley said.

Shirley's husband and her children attended the bingo hall after the incident and her husband spoke about how Washington had saved his wife's life in front of 400 bingo players and the family presented him with bottles of his favorite Jaegermeister.

Shirley said, 'When I opened my eyes I just saw this big face coming at me and I heard Ben say 'Shirley, come on' and I don't remember anything else.'

Operations manager of the club, Donna Brownhill said, 'Ben is very modest but the club, the company and all our customers are very proud of him.'

Steve Parry, a spokesperson for the ambulance service, said, 'When a patient suffers a medical condition every minute counts and the sooner a member of the public come to the aid of that patient the better chances that patient has of making a full recovery. The help of bystanders is also helpful to the ambulance service when such situations occur.'
