March air cadet Frasier saves friend Simon’s life after collapse in street


An air cadet from March helped bring his friend back to life after he suffered an extreme reaction to alcohol.

Frasier Casson-Rennie, a corporal from 511 Ramsey Squadron ATC, was celebrating his 18th birthday when his friend, Simon Foster, of Elm, collapsed in the street and stopped breathing.

Frasier performed first aid duties, including CPR, which he had learned during his time in the Air Training Corps.

Paramedics praised Frasier for doing “a really good job” and said Simon would have been much worse had he not been there.

Frasier said: “I am very thankful for the training I received allowing me to save my friend’s life.
