A father from Weymouth is making the most of his second chance at life after being given life-saving CPR by his wife and daughter.

56-year-old Pat Moss suffered a cardiac arrest at home when his heart suddenly stopped beating and blood was seen coming from his mouth.

His wife, Anne, along with teenage daughter, Lauren, called the emergency services who assisted the pair in carrying out vital chest compressions.

Pat said: "It came totally out of the blue. I was dead and gone. Without the caller handler, paramedics and hospital staff, I wouldn't be here. I'm chuffed with all the care I received. It's amazing to still be alive."
