LOCAL DJ FAILS TO REVIVE DANCEFLOOR HEART ATTACK VICTIM LAST NIGHT Latest Disco Tragedy Leads To Calls For Mandatory Disc Jockey Life Saving Training
(Huddersfield, West Yorkshire) — “I couldn’t think,” recalled a stammering Huddersfield disc jockey DJ Smile when confronted with the prostrate body of Jayne Watson lying on the dance floor at Gaunt Street night club Mr. Huddle’s yesterday evening. It was apparent that Watson had suffered a heart attack, but no one, least of all the DJ, was able to save her. The tragedy has led to appeals from some Labour MPs to compel DJs to attend life-saving courses.
“If a DJ can save the life of one woman,” said Labour leader Ed Milliband, “DJ CPR legislation will have been worth it.”
But the Conservative minister for Culture, Media and Sport Hugh Robertson labelled the proposals, “typical Labour Nanny State-ism” quipping that “DJs should stick to bangin’ chunes, not bangin’ chests.”
