    I am between cars right now due to the 5 series coming off lease and Mrs F not agreeing with my choice of a Range Rover Sport Supercharged for the time being. (She wants me to get a diesel VW Golf....Bah.)
    Due to my travel right now, I have just been renting from my local Avis when I need a car.
    I usually book a Lancer and then am given an XR6 or Commodore.

    This morning however, I was waiting for my car to be washed when an old gentleman being served at the counter, just collapsed and started turning blue.
    He was not a well man....
    With limited assistance from the Avis staff I managed to get him on his back and commenced CPR after checking his pulse, breathing etc...
    The staff called 000, and about 6-7 mins (Seemed liked forever) two crews came and took over.

    They loaded him up and took him off to the Royal Brisbane.
    I was a bit sweaty and shaky after this, so the manager put me in her office and organised a cold drink for me.
    When I wandered out to get the car, the manager gave me the keys to a new v8 Caprice and thanked me profusely for looking after the customer.
    I can imagine the paperwork she would have to go through if a customer passed away in her reception room....:shock:

    I phoned the hospital to check on him, and without giving me too many details, they said he was stable.
    Win/Win...

    Congrats and well done. Even when you're medically trained it seems to take forever for Ambos to arrive.


    OT/
    Get the RRS - just get the diesel version - tell MrsF it's diesel so will use the same fuel as the golf (!).

    It seems karma paid out quickly for your unflinching response to an ill man :)

    The rates quoted must have been a shocker literally for the poor customer :lol::lol::lol:.

    Its nice to hear a good deed being done and rewarded, too many people turn a blind eye these days to those in need.
