Two officers from Emergency Response Team 5 based at Hayes, administered CPR and saved the life of a 50 year old male.
On Friday 30th November at approx 8pm, Police were called by the London Ambulance Service to Botwell Green Sports and Leisure Centre, East Avenue, Hayes, where it was reported that a 50 year old male, was suffering from a cardiac arrest.
PC Nikala Halse 2507WA and PC Steve Gibson 2158WA were first on scene and following an initial assessment they commenced CPR.
Following a shock from a defibrillator, they continued CPR on the male who regained consciousness.
He was then taken to a nearby hospital by the London Ambulance Service.
The ‘Defib’ is a life-saving equipment, which is used to restart the heart when someone is in cardiac arrest, will allow police officers to respond to life-threatening emergencies.
Police officers are equipped with defibrillators and will be alerted to a potential cardiac arrest at the same time as ambulance crews, which means that if they reach the patient first, or are already on scene, they can begin providing life-saving treatment until a skilled clinician arrives.
