Shane Mitchell, 39, pulled over and performed CPR on 72-year-old Allan Mclean, who had collapsed.Mr Mclean said there was "no doubt" that the driver had saved his life. Mr Mitchell has received a Superstar award from his employers, First Group.Mr Mitchell said,  "I knew something was wrong because the gentleman's lips had turned blue. "I tried shouting in his ear, but there was no response, so then checked for a pulse, but couldn't find one. I asked one of my other passengers to call an ambulance, and then I set about trying to revive him. "I opened his shirt, checked his airways and then began CPR. I just kept going until the ambulance arrived, hoping that I could get some form of response. The emergency services arrived within a few minutes and rushed him to hospital." Click here to read more
