A MAN suffered a cardiac arrest while attending the Antiques Roadshow at Compton Verney.
Bystanders began CPR on the man and show’s medical team managed to restart his heart before paramedics arrived just before noon yesterday (Tuesday).
The Air Ambulance was also sent to the scene and the man was flown to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.
Paramedic Jason Wiles said: “We cannot emphasise enough the importance of early CPR when a patient is in cardiac arrest. We have nothing but the highest praise for the bystanders and on-site medical team who acted so quickly to help this man and ultimately saved his life.
“Following further treatment at the scene from ambulance staff and the air ambulance crew, the man was flown to hospital, where he remains in a stable condition.
“Would you know what to do in the same situation? We urge as many people as possible to learn how to do CPR as you never know when it will be your turn to save a life.”
