Gareth Davies from Cheshire

Dr Amy Marshall and Gareth Davies, 2000sNorth West‘In December 2010 I was at a Vauxhall Motors football match in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, when I saw a man collapse and rushed to his aid. He was not breathing and there were no signs of life so I commenced CPR.

The stadium’s Medical Officer soon arrived on the scene and administered oxygen. I performed CPR for 17 minutes until the ambulance came.

I am pleased to say that the patient became responsive after my first aid work. He was transferred to hospital in a stable but critical condition. The patient’s wife thanked me afterwards for the nice Christmas present I had given her – helping save her husband’s life.’
