Cornwall teenager saves dad with CPR learnt from House

A teenager saved her dad's life thanks to CPR learnt from the hit TV series House.

Barry Holland, 56, suffered a cardiac arrest and collapsed in the family kitchen in Helston, Cornwall.

Kodie Holland, 18, told her mum off for doing chest compressions incorrectly before taking over, and said: "I just knew that if I stopped then I would lose my dad."

Dr Alistair Slade, consultant cardiologist at Royal Cornwall Hospital said it was a "fantastic case".
