Off duty he­roes save man

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

The quick think­ing of a doc­tor and po­lice­man, who were both en­joy­ing a fi­esta in Benissa, saved a man’s life last Sun­day. A mem­ber of the pub­lic no­ticed the man ly­ing in the road in the town cen­tre dur­ing the fes­tiv­i­ties for Sant An­toni. Af­ter shout­ing for as­sis­tance, both the po­lice of­fi­cer and the doc­tor came run­ning to help. They quickly es­tab­lished the man had no pulse and was un­con­scious, and per­formed heart mas­sage and mouth-to­mouth re­sus­ci­ta­tion. Two on-duty of­fi­cers also at­tended to the heart at­tack vic­tim, and called for a life sup­port am­bu­lance. They man­aged to re­vive him, and when the am­bu­lance crew ar­rived, they took him to De­nia hos­pi­tal for treat­ment. The man was well enough to sit up in bed the fol­low­ing day and is re­cov­er­ing well.
