Nurse saved Dublin bus driver by administering CPR

The scene where Aoife McGivney saved the life of a Dublin bus driver.

The story for Aoife McGivney, a nurse in Dublin, was first reported on Monday 4th March 2019.

Aoife together with other passengers managed the bring the rolling bus to a halt and then free the unconscious driver from his cabin. All this happening in morning rush hour traffic at O’Connell bridge, right in the heart of Dublin.

As soon as she realised that the driver stopped breathing she commenced CPR. Thanks to her quick thinking and the help of other bystanders Aoife managed to keep his heart pumping until the arrival of the emergency service.

Aoife highlighted the need for every person to have some basic First Aid knowledge and to know how to perform CPR. She gave her account of what happened at the RTE Late Late Show on 8th March 2019.

We feel that Aoife is a wonderful ambassador for every company and organisation in Ireland that promotes the need to learn and maintain First Aid skills.

We encourage everybody to attend a First Aid course. Our First Aid courses in Dublin are held on a regular basis at the Maldron hotel Newlands Cross. For more information click here.
