A paramedic took a heart attack as he was trying to resuscitate a woman in cardiac arrest at her home with his colleagues able to save both of them.

Jeremy Williams, 53, was helping treat the 30-year-old woman at the house when he started to feel unwell himself. The NHS worker suddenly felt ‘excruciating’ pain and some of his colleagues began helping by giving him an ECG, while others continued to work on the woman.

It was revealed he was having a heart attack as well and both casualties were treated until they could be taken to different hospitals.

Jeremy underwent emergency surgery to have two stents fitted to unblock the arteries around his heart. Now he and the original patient, from Bedfordshire are both making full recoveries, report Mirror Online.
