My wife Catherine and I had gone to babysit for our grandson. It had been just a normal day, we’d gone to feed the ducks with him and had got back to the house.
I was sat down when Catherine brought me a coffee and suddenly, out of the blue, I went into cardiac arrest. A friend gave me CPR and then Magpas arrived. They gave me advanced life support and anaesthetised me. In other words, they brought specialist care to me to help save my life.
We were really shocked to find out that Magpas is a charity. We’d urge people to support Magpas Air Ambulance because like us, you never know what’s round the corner. We are so, so thankful – I can’t begin to explain!
