DIP OAP BACK FROM DEATH

Daily Star - - News -

A VET­ERAN swim­mer was brought back from the dead at a swim­ming pool – as flags were low­ered to half-mast around him.

Peter Marks, 75, had fin­ished his dip when he col­lapsed and stopped breath­ing. Flags at the sea­wa­ter lido were low­ered in re­spect.

He was clin­i­cally dead for 55 min­utes. But af­ter be­ing given CPR by pal Steve Pin­field and paramedics he was re­vived and flown to hospi­tal, where he fully re­cov­ered.

Peter, of Pen­zance, has now been reunited with his res­cuers at the town’s Ju­bilee Pool. He said: “There is no doubt they all did an amaz­ing job.”
