Baboon saved by Bee Gees song

A Hamadryas baboon, called Aunt Bessie, survived two heart attacks at a Devon zoo, and strangely enough it was down to the help of at Bee Gees’ song ’Stayin’ Alive’.
The four-year-old female was taken to the medical team at Paignton Zoo.
Ghislaine Sayers the head vet, says that while she carried out the resuscitation of the baboon, with the song in her head.
It comes after the vet saw ‘Vinnie Jones' hard and fast’ video, produced by the British Heart Foundation.
The advert campaign sees hard-man Vinnie Jones taking through how to carry out ‘hands only CPR’ with no mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, because as Vinnie says “you only kiss your missus on the lips.”
As a baboon’s heart is similar to that of a human child’s, the video that instructs the viewer how to resuscitate a human, was a success on the baboon.
With more on this story was Communications expert, James Hutchinson.
