She said on Twitter: 'Fortunately I have my level 3 emergency first aid & also an off-duty nurse was helping.
'I'm glad I could help him to stay stable while waiting for the ambulance who were fantastic, I must say - shook my hand and thanked me when they arrived.'
Her friend on social media, Karl Newson added: 'That's great. Just proves the training came in handy. You helped him and them. So no wonder thay shook your hand. Well done to you both. Bet there are a lot of people thanking you both for saving his life. And in a shop full of people.'
