Deadly gymnastics


There has been a drama at the gym in Bournemouth. A 60 year old man had a heart attack whilst exercising, an ambulance was called and very sadly he died in hospital. The staff at the gym, however, were unaware that the man's wife was in an exercise class there at the time and so she had no idea of her husband's plight. Our office has been preparing its annual "Disaster Recovery Plan" and, mindful of this, our office manager asked the receptionist at the gym two days after this tragedy if they had the correct emergency contact details for her. "I've no idea," replied the receptionist, "we don't have that information on our system."

My son's 17-year-old schoolfriend died from an epileptic fit last week. All this shows we must enjoy every moment while we have breath in our body.
