I think basic CPR should be taught in all schools – Lydia Forson

Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson has suggested that basic CPR training should be incorporated into school curriculums.

Her proposal comes in the wake of the tragic drowning incident involving Nigerian actor Junior Pope and his film crew.

Sharing her views on the X app, Lydia Forson emphasized the necessity of CPR skills, noting that many people are unprepared to respond effectively in emergencies.

“I think basic CPR should be taught in all schools, and it’s something we should all learn,” she stated. “It seems whenever there’s an accident, a lot of us don’t know what to do; and the small window of hope is always lost due to a lack of CPR.”


CPR, which stands for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, is an emergency procedure aimed at maintaining brain function by manually restoring blood circulation and breathing in individuals experiencing cardiac arrest or respiratory failure until further medical assistance can be provided.
