“The surgeon told me later that the air ambulance getting me to the hospital so quickly saved my life. I wouldn’t be here today without it.”
Golfer Keith Mosley was sitting on his golf buggy waiting to play a shot on the 17th fairway when he collapsed and slid to the ground.
Fellow golfers immediately put him in the recovery position and staff phoned the emergency services. When paramedics arrived they were very concerned about Keith’s erratic heartbeat and shallow breathing so Derbyshire Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance was called to airlift him to hospital.
Keith (75) had suffered a cardiac arrest and had blood clots in his brain and heart.
He was flown to the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield where he had another heart attack and he was put into an induced coma.
“When my wife arrived she was told to expect the worse but luckily I came through. The surgeon told me later that the air ambulance getting me to the hospital so quickly saved my life. I wouldn’t be here today without it,” says Keith.
After nearly three weeks in hospital he completed a cardiac rehabilitation course. Keith is now hitting balls on the driving range and is building up to playing 18 holes of his beloved game again.
