Mr Ellwood gave mouth-to-mouth resuscitation in a desperate bid to save his life.  Mr Ellwood who is a former British Army Officer, sadly lost his brother in the Bali bombings in 2002 whilst he was there for a teaching conference.

Mr Ellwood said to the Daily Mail: “I was on the scene and as soon as I realised what was going on I headed towards it. It is a huge tragedy, it really is.

“I tried to stem the flow of blood and give mouth to mouth while waiting for the medics to arrive but I think he had lost too much blood.”
