Paramedics have described a man as 'one in a million' after he was shocked 14 times with a defibrillator after suffering a heart attack.
Keith Llowarch from Mancot, Flintshire woke up at home one morning experiencing chest pains, but initially didn’t realise what was happening to him.
As his pain grew worse, his partner Suzanne Jones took the decision to call 999.
Welsh ambulance crew members responded to the call.
Paramedic Gareth Roberts attended in a rapid response car in order to provide assistance.
Keith had to be shocked 14 times to restore his heart to a normal rhythm.
He was admitted to the Countess of Chester on December 12th before being transferred to Broadgreen Hospital in Liverpool. He underwent a double coronary artery bypass to divert blood around any narrowed or blocked parts of major arteries to improve the flow of blood and oxygen to his heart.
Keith was discharged from hospital on December 19th and this week met with those who came to his aid to thank them in person.
