Hundreds receive heart screenings

Help

More than 450 people will receive free heart screenings from a local charity in the Isle of Man this weekend.

Paula Lunt set up Craig's Heartstrong Foundation in memory of her son, who died from a undiagnosed heart defect in April 2005.

Mrs Lunt said: "If I can stop one more mother from going through my hell, then I will he happy."

Qualified doctors and technical staff will offer free testing to detect any possible symptoms of hypertonic and dilated cardiomyopathy.
