How the Baby Shark song can save a life

You might have the Baby Shark song stuck on replay at home but did you know the beloved tune could be life-saving?

Tomorrow marks World First Aid Day and St John Ambulance NSW’s Wayne Snell joined Deborah Knight to explain the best way to give CPR.

“Something between 100 and 120 beats per minute, just to keep focusing on the timeframe.”
