How a passing motorist saved a cardiac arrest victim’s life
Jade Lay’s brush with death in 2018 has not only changed his outlook on life but his view on the importance of having publicly accessible defibrillators and a community trained in first aid.
“I had been going through treatment for bowel cancer and while I was cycling home from work on Guildford road, I started feeling tired and then…black”.
Jade had suffered a cardiac arrest. His heart had stopped causing him to collapse on the side of the road. Luckily a passing motorist had stopped and administered CPR along with flagging down an ambulance that was fortuitously passing by just at the right time.
