Female Died at 'Reggae Falls' Friends Did Their Best Applying CPR

More and more people die each year by drowning. How can we blame the water yet still most of us have little or no clue about CPR and the proper procedures or process to go about recovering someone who is in a cardiac state.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) consists of the use of chest compressions and artificial ventilation to maintain circulatory flow and oxygenation during cardiac arrest.

Although survival rates and neurologic outcomes are poor for patients with cardiac arrest, early appropriate resuscitation—involving early defibrillation—and appropriate implementation of post–cardiac arrest care lead to improved survival and neurologic outcomes.

Over the weekend a female, 23-year-old Javaughna Russell of Mount Pelliar in Yallahs, had got into difficulties while swimming at the popular attraction 'Reggae Falls' in st Thomas. A mystery still stands on how she died as water levels are not much pass the knee in dept according to one commenter.

Persons at the scene did their best in trying to revive her, but unfortunately with the lack of knowledge on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), she never recovered. Her body was discovered about 5:30 p.m. Initial reports placed her time of death an hour earlier.

According to her friends, Russell was to celebrate her 24th birthday 30th of January.
