A wife resuscitated her husband after he suffered a cardiac arrest yesterday.

She assisted her husband, who is in his 60s, before two East of England Ambulance crews and Magpas Helimedix arrived.

At 9:55am, Magpas Helimedix (Doctor Tom Odbert and Paramedic Mark Glover) arrived at the couple’s house in Wisbech.

The man was then safely moved into the back of a Land Ambulance where the Magpas team sedated and anaesthetised him.

The Helimedix then accompanied the patient to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn where, on arrival, he was in a stable condition.
