Social media users are sharing an Amazon Alexa tip which could help save lives.
Writing on Facebook, the user explained: "Did you know if you have an Alexa in the home she can be of more use than you realise in a crisis?
"Initially as it's an Alexa skill you'll need to activate it on your Alexa - 'Alexa, activate emergency CPR'.
"In the event of someone in the home of where an Alexa is present having a sudden cardiac arrest and you're unsure what to do shout 'Alexa, emergency CPR'.
"Alexa will assist you by telling you what to do, including CPR instructions."
Over on Twitter, other social media users have been discussing the skill too, with one person tweeting: "Did you know if you ask #Alexa 'Activate Emergency CPR' it will give you instructions to perform! It can also be enabled as a skill on your device
Note: this doesn’t replace physical training but could save a life."
While another said: "Good to know #Alexa can guide #cpr in the event of #cardiacarrest BUT important to call the emergency number first so an ambulance can be dispatched. Where telephone-CPR instructions not provided, Alexa will be useful as time is critical."
