Lowestoft: Man Meets Life-Savers After Heart Attack

8 May 2013, 05:00

A man who collapsed in a car park in Lowestoft has thanked the passerby and GP who saved his life.

John Benson had a heart attack a few weeks ago as he walked to the doctors surgery.

He collapsed metres from the door and was given CPR and shocked with a defibrillator.

Now he's met the people who came to his aid.  Walter Lloyd-Smith was first on the scene and started CPR when Mr Benson's heart stopped.

The GP Kausar Khan then brought a defibrillator out and restarted Mr Benson's heart.

He's since had an operation at the Norfolk and Norwich hospital and is on his way to making a full recovery.
