Army medic targets world record with 26-hour CPR charity challenge

Sergeant Alex Broadley will find out if she has set a world record in 11 weeks' time.

A British Army medic is hoping to become a world record holder after taking on a 26-hour CPR challenge for charity.

Sergeant Alex Broadley has already raised more than her initial £1,000 target for the Armed Forces charity SSAFA.

The soldier, based at Infantry Training Centre Medical Centre in Catterick, North Yorkshire, completed the challenge on Thursday morning and will find out if she is a world record holder in 11 weeks' time.

The challenge was set up in aid of her son, who is going through assessments for autism. Sgt Broadley is also hoping to further raise awareness of serving while looking after a child with a disability.
