Man saves boy’s life on beach just weeks after doing life-saving course

first_imgA Co Donegal man saved the life of a young boy in America – just weeks after doing his first life-saving course.Brian Dolan was delighted after doing the course in his native village of Creeslough back in April.But little did he think he would actually use those skills after finding a boy in a collapsed state along the Florida coastline. Brian and his family were on the trip of a lifetime in August.They were due to come home to Ireland when they were walking along the beach only to discover a 14-year-old boy lying face down on the shoreline.Brian initially called for help and appealed for anybody around who could do CPR but he soon realised he was the only one with any training in the life-saving technique.He explained: “There was a few young kids slashing about in the water and there was a woman taking photographs just off to our right. “The next thing I knew there was squealing and roaring and she was shouting and here was a young lad face down in the water.“The waves were bringing him in and the waves were bringing him back out again. Then when he came in a second time and back out again she went in after him. I thought it might have been a young man messing about at first.“She dived into the water and had her right arm around his chest and her other hand was holding her phone out of water. Down I went anyway and grabbed the young fella off her and took him up to the edge of the beach, he was completely flaccid, just completely out of it.“I shouted to see if there was anyone else who could do CPR before I would start doing it but there was no reply.”His wife Margaret Anne rang for medical help and sought to get a defibrillator while Brian began doing what he was taught to do during his recent first responder training with the Creeslough Community First Responders group. He said it was a scary experience but that was grateful to have undertaken the CPR training so recently.He said: “It was scary. The eyes were gone in the back of his head and he was out of it altogether. The first seven or eight compressions I did there was a spout of water coming out 12 to 18 inches high. It was a solid flow of water.“I did 30 compression but there was no way to do mouth to mouth. I tried to do it through his nose but it was just like blowing into a bucket of water. There was just bubbles coming out.“I did another 30 compression’s and it still did the same again. Then there wasn’t as much water coming out. I’m not sure if it was on the third or fourth set of compression’s but he coughed. “We turned him on his side and we got him sitting he was coughing and getting sick. At this stage we had him sitting up and the lifeguard came, three or four of them on quad bikes.“They put oxygen on him and within a minute we heard the ambulance. They picked him up on the back of the quad and brought him to the ambulance and he was brought away”.Once Brian returned to his hotel room and later in the evening he made contact with the boy’s family who said they were expecting him to kept in hospital overnight.However, went to meet the family again before he left the hotel the following day he was told the boys condition had deteriorated and he was in intensive care.He remained there for a few days due to complications with his breathing and heart beat.Thankfully he did recover enough to be discharged later that week.Brendan said he left the US with hauntingly vivid image of the young boys eyes when he first encountered him.However, having remained in contact with his family after the incident they have since sent him a recent image of a happy, healthy-looking lad which he said brought him a sense of closure on the incident.“That picture has done a lot for me,” he told the group.“I was told after the incident that if wasn’t for the CPR he wouldn’t have made it but you just go into autopilot.“The training was invaluable as I didn’t get time to think on what to do, so I’m very thankful for the training I got,” Brian added.Brian learned CPR through the Creeslough Community First Responders group who work alongside the National Ambulance Service by proving first response in the Creeslough community to persons who have heart attack, cardiac arrest, strokes or choking symptoms.They run regular courses and can be contacted through their Facebook page “Creeslough Defib”.Man saves boy’s life on beach just weeks after doing life-saving course was last modified: October 7th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Momento’s magic mohair exports

first_img7 April 2006It started with three unemployed but expert weavers and a scraped-together initial investment of R4 000. Today Momento’s of Africa is a world-class producer of luxury mohair textiles and apparel, exporting over 70% of its products to countries such as Germany, Canada and Dubai.The company is based in Port Elizabeth, the self-proclaimed mohair capital of the world. Mohair, produced from the Angora goats, has been called “the animal-lover’s fur” because the fine and luxurious fibre is produced by shearing, not killing.For many years, South Africa has been the biggest producer of mohair, most of it coming from farms in the semi-desert Karoo region. The fibre is auctioned in Port Elizabeth in Nelson Mandela Bay.Today over 60% of the world’s mohair passes through the city in one form or another. This has allowed producers of finished mohair goods such as Momento’s of Africa to prosper.From self-help to world-classMomento’s – the odd spelling is intentional – has its roots in a small self-help project run in the 1980s by British expert weaver Lin Smith at the Port Elizabeth technical college. Called Pencen, the programme taught unemployed people to weave Xhosa tapestries, to allow them to make a living.But when funding dried up in the early 1990s the progamme was forced to shut down, leaving its graduates and trainers with good skills but no outlet for their products. Lin saw this as an opportunity and, with Pencen trainers Beauty Samana and Thandiwe Ngidi, set up a specialist tapestry curio shop at Port Elizabeth Airport with that scraped-together R4 000.Their success was immediate, with the shop gaining a reputation for high-quality mohair products by word of mouth.“Tourists started telling us how much they loved our blankets,” Roger Smith, Lin’s husband, told South African Exporter. “Then they started importing them in small quantities and started selling them in shops in their neighbourhoods. That’s how we started exporting.“The shop became famous, particularly internationally. We had write-ups in American magazines as the best place to buy curios.”ExpansionThe initial success led to a rapid expansion requiring new premises, and the airport gave the company an old hangar to use. As production increased, Momento’s had a ready supply of skilled labour – former employees and graduates of the Pencen programme, all trained by Lin.In 1998 output was increased, with new merchandise – scarves, capes, ponchos, shawls, pullovers, hats and berets – being brought into production. Overseas distributors were secured, and today Momento’s exports 70% of its products to Germany, Canada, the UK, France, Sweden, Norway, Holland, Dubai, Australia and New Zealand.By January 2002 the company had secured enough orders to keep its staff busy for the entire year.“We couldn’t take any more orders for that year,” Roger told SA Exporter. “People also wanted their goods as soon as they ordered, they didn’t want to wait for us to manufacture them some time in the distant future.”So the company expanded again, moving into a new factory the following year. Today Momento’s has two shops – Momento’s of Africa and Mogo – in Port Elizabeth and another, Moyisa, in Durban. There’s also the BabyMo factory and showroom in Port Elizabeth, where the public is welcome to both view products and watch the company’s crafters at work.International brandsMomento’s has launched a number of brand names that have come to denote quality all over the world.BabyMo products are woven from the wool of kid – or baby – Angora goats, resulting in extremely fine and silky textiles with none of the scratchiness that can be associated with mohair. Its popularity was confirmed when it won a Best New Product award at the prestigious New York Home Textile Show in spring 2005.The Shangora range is knitted – not woven – in kid wool, while the imiBoniso brand takes Momento’s back to its roots, with stunning mohair tapestries and wall hangings done to both modern and traditional Xhosa designs.With all its international success, Momento’s remains a very South African company, committed to the country’s future.With 69% of its shares black owned, it was named one of South Africa’s top 300 black economic empowerment companies at both the 2004 and 2005 Impumelelo Awards. Its staff is made up almost entirely of black people, most of them previously unemployed, and a fair number disabled.Momento’s also actively encourages its staff to acquire new skills, spending about 16% of its income on training courses.Information sourced from Momento’s of Africa and The South African Exporter.

How You Lose Your Cultural Values

first_imgA person with poor values and morals can damage your culture and cause people to believe something about your company that isn’t true. Someone who is willing to do things that are illegal or immoral can give others the perception that these things are condoned—even when they are not.If you allow someone to act outside of what you profess to be your beliefs and values, you are in a sense condoning their value systems through an unwillingness to confront their poor behavior or prevent it once it has come to light. The longer a person (or persons) are allowed to continue to do things that conflict with your cultural values, the more they diminish your values—and your moral authority.If someone on your team is willing to lie or mislead a client, for that client, the person who lied is a representation of your organizations cultural values. Even if this is not true. And even if this is not fair. If there are no consequences for their behavior, acceptance is the same as condoning the behavior.If someone on your team is willing to accept money that doesn’t belong to them, then your clients—and your employees—will see evidence that the cultural values of your company are ones that allow for theft. If the person who has violated your values is left in their position without repercussions, their behavior has been accepted.Leaders who mistreat their employees, using force instead of inspiration and influence, leaning on a dominator hierarchy instead of a growth hierarchy (the first being positional authority, the latter being an other-oriented, moral authority), that behavior is indicative of the leadership team—even if it is nothing close to universally true.The worst behavior, when condoned or accepted, is how you lose your company’s cultural values.
