A guest house owner from Penzance has thanked paramedics who saved his life after his heart stopped beating.
Keith Richards, aged 64, suffered a cardiac arrest and collapsed at home back in March.
A team of medics from South Western Ambulance Service attended within five minutes and shocked Keith with a defibrillator to get his heart beating again.
He was taken to hospital in Truro and is now recovering.
At a special event at Penzance Ambulance Station, Keith and his family were reunited with the team who rushed to his aid.
Keith's daughters, Lindsay and Louise, said: “We would like to express our pure gratitude to everyone involved in saving our dad on that fateful day."
“You’ve given us the greatest gift, and we will always remember what you did. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
