Théo Cusson, in the middle of a sports class in Paris, was alerted on Tuesday January 7 by the SAUV Life application. The 22-year-old teacher, trained in first aid, immediately ran out. “I received an SMS, saying: 'We need your help, thank you for intervening on the accident' “. The former volunteer firefighter followed the application's GPS to get to the scene, less than 500 meters away. On the spot, a crowd gathered around the infant, victim of a cardiac arrest.
On the hood of a car, Théo Cusson then massaged the baby at the rib cage with his thumbs by applying pressure. “It was very long, I was only waiting for one thing: to hear the emergency siren so that they come and take over “, he remembers. The baby has since been placed in intensive care. According to the Samu, this application allows faster interventions. Since its launch in May 2018, 85 hearts have left. 350,000 people have already downloaded the SAUV Life application.
