13-year-old fights for life after cardiac arrest on football pitch
A 13-year-old boy is on a life support machine in hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest during a football match. Quinton Barham collapsed on the pitch after complaining of feeling unwell during a match on Sunday.
First aiders and an off-duty paramedic gave CPR before an air ambulance arrived at the Bromham Social Centre in Wiltshire. Medics then re-started Quinton's heart and he was stabilised before being taken to Bristol Children's Hospital.
Quinton attends the Clarendon College in Trowbridge and is a devoted footballer. Doctors say it is too early to tell what damage the cardiac arrest may have caused to his brain.
