And youre not likely to catch a disease. These are the messages the ambulance service is hoping to get out to young people about cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), in an ad campaign called Will you be ready for your first time?. The ad, to be shown in cinemas and on television this summer, shows a nervous teenage boy performing CPR for his first time. Launching the campaign yes terday Ambulance Victoria chief executive Greg Sassella said he wanted to take the fear out of performing CPR for young people. Research indicates that CPR given by an untrained per son during the first few minutes after cardiac arrest ... can prove to be lifesaving, he said. Family violence spikes at Christmas F A M I L Y v i o l e n c e spiked dramatically during the Christmas holiday period last year, new police data shows. Almost 1000 incidents of family violence were reported to Victorian Police between Christ mas and New Year. Boxing Day kept pol ice especially busy with 139 family violence in cidents reported, while there were 134 on New Years Day, the Victor ian Police data shows.

Booze played a huge part in family viol ence incidents, said Act ing Inspector Lauren Callaway of the Sexual Offence and Child Abuse Co-ordination office. The figures come one year after Victorian Pol ice were given new powers to tackle family violence orders to ban perpetrators from abus ing family members. Teensmotor nicked after long restoration RUINED CHRISTMAS: Jordan Ward, 15, had his motorbike stolen from the familys Woodroffe home after thieves cut a hole in the front fence. His 11-year-old sister TahliaWard, pictured with friend Troya Bell, 12, is now too scared to stay home alone in the school holidays. Picture STUART WALMSLEY ByNADJAHAINKE JORDAN Ward doesnt have much to smile about this festive season after his hard-earned motorbike was stolen from his home. The 15-year-old welding apprentice, of Woodroffe in Palmerston, spent nearly every cent of his weekly $300 wage to fix up the damaged Honda CR125 over the last few months. His new helmet and racing gear are now left abandoned in his room after the bike was stolen early on Friday only a week after his dream was completed. It was pretty sad, I spent two grants on it, Jordan said. It was a real good bike, it was fast and it was only two years old. I was just really angry. They should get a job and pay for their own things. The bike was broken when Jordan bought it for $600 off the side of a road about six months ago. A new machine would have cost about $5000. He worked two jobs to get the motorbike up and running, J o r d a n s m o t h e r D e b b i e Byrnes said. Its just devastating. He was so excited and I was so proud of him to put it all together. The bike was locked up at the b a c k o f t h e p r o p e r t y o n Zenith Circuit. Witnesses told police they saw two boys cutting the mesh fence about 7.15am. The pad lock at the back gate was crushed before the thieves were seen taking off on the machine. They ... let the dog out and (left), Ms Byrnes said. Territory Police Duty Superintendent Michael Murphy said police were investigating the case. Were following several leads and were hopeful to get the bike back to them as soon as possible, he said.
