Another story we want to share with you about the importance of having an AED in as many community places as possible, including your local gym.

68-year-old avid gym goer David Dempsey suffered a Sudden Cardiac Arrest whilst riding a recumbent bike at his local gym in Fort Walton Beach Florida. Staff spotted him slumped over unconscious with no pulse and immediately went into action.

They called emergency services, started CPR then applied the AED which likely saved his life.

Luckily David has made a full recovery, with a new stent in his heart and is now back on the bike.
