Heart attacks

Southbourne coastguards rewarded for saving teammate's life

Seventeen minutes of CPR saved colleague who had heart attack on a training exercise.
A team of coastguards from Southbourne have been given three awards for a rescue last year.

One of the crew, Marc Reddy, spoke to Steve Harris on BBC Radio Solent.

Man resuscitated by fellow competitors running again

Runner thanks competitors who saved his life after his heart stopped
Six months ago a man collapsed at a running event, in north Dorset (Six Penny Handley).

Andy Dann had suffered a heart attack - which brought on a cardiac arrest. 

Caroline Easton from near Plymouth and Carolyn Bell from East Dorset were just behind him.

Thanks to their quick thinking - and the help of marshals, organisers and the emergency services - Andy survived. 

The three of them were reunited at the weekend, crossing the finish line of a race in Wiltshire together.

Carolyn, Caroline and Andy have been speaking to Steve Harris.
