Family’s gratitude

A NURSING student from UWE has been treated to a night out by the family of a woman whose life he saved while at the theatre.

A NURSING student from UWE has been treated to a night out by the family of a woman whose life he saved while at the theatre.

Kristian Keyte was invited on an evening out by the family of Judith Mansfield, who went into cardiac arrest in the audience before the start of the musical The Bodyguard at the Bristol Hippodrome earlier this year.

They revisited the scene where quick-thinking Kristian performed CPR on the fellow theatre-goer when they returned to the venue to watch Sister Act.

Kristian, who graduates next month,  has since become great friends with Judith’s family and with Bodyguard star Alexandra Burke, who also plays the lead in Sister Act.

He said: “Nurses don’t get thanked enough today so it’s really lovely that the family are showing their appreciation in this way.”
