John’s heart safety in Ealing

John's heart safety in Ealing imagePeople living and working around Pitshanger Lane, Ealing are now protected in the case of a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) after John Martin of John Martin Estates bought a G5 automated external defibrillator (AED) following the death of a friend after an SCA. John said, “I’ve been part of this community for 20 years and I wanted to give something back. I thought what better way to do that than to buy a defibrillator? The need for this was brought home when I took part in the London Triathlon. A fellow competitor suffered an SCA and my wife Rhian had no idea it wasn’t me – scary for her and a wake-up call for me.”

The Cardiac Science G5 AED was provided by paramedic Tim Chivers of the London Ambulance Service. “Tim visited us and advised on the unit and its location; now, if this defibrillator saves just one life, it will be well worth the investment.”
