THE fast reaction of an off-duty fireman and a nurse who was jogging have saved the life of a man who had suffered a cardiac arrest in the middle of a Motril street.
The events took place on Wednesday (August 12) at around 8.30am, according to a statement released by the town council, when a fireman who had just finished working was heading home on his motorbike, when he found a man aged around 50 years old who had apparently collapsed on the ground.
The fireman stopped his motorbike and ran to assist the man who was unconscious and with no heartbeat.
In that moment, a nurse who was jogging in the area approached them and helped the fireman perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation on the man.
The efficient work of the duo allowed the man to recover his pulse and he was then taken to the Motril hospital where he remains in the intensive care unit.
