Hubby saved after her desperate plea
A MAN who “died” for 68 minutes was saved after his wife begged paramedics to try “one more time”.
Sue Davies was told her husband Chris Hickey, 63, was dead at their home after his heart stopped when he collapsed in the bathroom.
But the 62-year-old, who performed CPR on her husband after reading about emergency response the night before, asked medics to try again and they brought back a pulse.
Chris, of Cheltenham, has now made a full recovery.
He said: “There must be around 50 people who helped save my life, but right at the top of the pyramid is my wife.
“It’s impossible to express my love in words.”
He added: “Normally they say you do resuscitation for 15 to 20 minutes and three defibrillation attempts.
“I was 68 minutes and 12 different shocks.
“I should be dead – there is no question about it.”
Sue, who had read about cardiac arrest procedures in a magazine article, said: “There’s no magic to it – you just have to do it.”
SO GRATEFUL: Chris, 63
