Defibrillators at all Milk Cup venues
Chris McNeill was revived with the aid of a defibrillator during a game at this year's Milk Cup.
The Portstewart man is continuing his remarkable recovery following surgery and he is hailing the the provision of defibrillator at all Milk Cup grounds next year as a welcome breakthrough.
St John's Ambulance officer Andrew Fleming says a patient's chance of survival by having a "defibrillator on hand to shock the heart in the first minute after a collapse is 90 per cent. That decreases every minute by ten per cent."
Milk Cup chairman Victor Leonard welcomed the £6,000 donation by the Bertie Peacock foundation which made the medical development possible.
