I Can Hear Your Heartbeat

You see that eerie blue light, right? Well it actually pulses, a bit
like a heartbeat. These blue lifesavers are rare beasts indeed - only
about ten have been installed at strategic, and often inaccessible
points around the city, where vital aid could be a while coming, like
here, on top of the Arc de Triomphe.

The idea is that any old (or young) Joe Bloggs or Jean Dupont or Feng
Wong or Muhammed Hussain, or the fairer equivalents of course, seeing
someone in heartfelt distress, can grab the phone in one hand, the
jolly old defibrilator in the other, and jumpstart the unfortunate
sufferer back to life by following remote instructions, just like in
the movies!

Although if they take as long to answer as that last sentence takes to
read, they may as well not bother...

Coming soon: my exclusive guide to fun yet fully equipped places to
have cardiac arrests and other heart emergencies in and around Paris.
Will also be available shortly in the iPhone App Store with built-in
geolocalisation (unsuitable for wearers of Pacemakers).
