Have your say

A MAN was resuscitated by a rescue crew after he had a heart attack opposite their station.

Three members of Gosport and Fareham Inshore Rescue Service carried out CPR and used a defibrillator, with the man regaining consciousness after five minutes.

The fisherman had returned from a fishing trip when he collapsed on the GAFIRS slipway at Stokes Bay, Gosport, on Sunday afternoon.

GAFIRS members had taken over from the man’s friend who had started CPR and called out for help.

The man was taken to Queen Alexandra Hospital by ambulance.
