I suffered a cardiac arrest whilst cycling in April, and was extremely lucky to have very effective CPR from by passers-by, during which my heart was stopped for over 10 mins. I've no memory of the incident, but the WFA arrived only 10 mins after call; for cardiac arrest, time's critical, survival chances drop massively per minute and defibrillation is essential for survival. Roadside helpers since told me that WFA provided awesome help via the phone and once there, they re-started my heart with a defibrillator, and took me to Welly Hosp. I was also badly bashed from the cycle fall, as well as a couple of broken ribs, which must have compounded the crew's problems. After a long hard road, I've made a full recovery; I was dead when the WFA arrived and they played a critical part in my survival. I've been given a second chance, beating massive odds with the help of the fantastic WFA. Thank you so much.
