My husband collapsed from a cardiac arrest whilst we were on holiday in Cornwall. I am a doctor and I knew what had happened. I commenced CPR whilst my friends rang 999.
The emergency services responded so well, first responder, co-responders, paramedic crew and air ambulance. He was taken to Treliske Hospital Cornwall where he had excellent treatment and care. He is alive today and back home. We are so grateful to all involved.
