If you find somebody who's suffering, or you think they're suffering from a heart attack, the important thing to do is, obviously, call the emergency services, but also get them to a position where they're comfortable. Help them into a position them on the floor, maybe against a wall, a tree, or something similar. Sit them down on the floor, bring their knees up towards their chest, and lean them forward.

What this is doing is its opening up the chest cavity to help reduce the pressure on the heart. We don’t want to lay them down and elevate their legs because that would put a massive pressure on the heart. Once they are in this position, keep talking to them and monitoring them and obviously, get emergency services there as quickly as possible.
