Major League Umpire, Singing Stayin' Alive, Helps Save Woman's Life

PHOENIX -- Jim Joyce's timing could not have been better. In fact, it was lifesaving. The veteran Major League umpire performed CPR on Diamondbacks food service employee Jayne Powers prior to the D-backs-Marlins game on Monday night.

Nearly One in Three Survives SCA in London

London has the best cardiac arrest survival rate in England, newly-released figures suggest. During 2011-12, the out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survival rate in London was 31.7% - a figure that includes footballer Fabrice Muamba's case. That compares with second placed East of England with 24.4% and a low of 10.8% in the South Central region. It is the first time all emergency medical services (EMS) in England have measured the survival rate. The figures were submitted to the Department of Health for collation.
