A heart attack victim who was clinically dead for more than an hour is recovering thanks to life-saving surgery by doctors at Northampton General Hospital.
60-year-old John Thomson from Northampton dialled 999 when he started having chest pains which led to a cardiac arrest. His heart had stopped for around 80 minutes by the time surgeons were able to unblock a blood vessel and resuscitate him. He's now thanked the hospital for saving his life.
