Two players save the life of a referee who suffered a cardiac arrest

Two health workers who were playing a soccer game attended a 73-year-old referee this afternoon, who collapsed on the field due to a cardiac arrest this Saturday at the Canal de Isabel II facilities, a spokeswoman for Madrid Emergencies has reported.

The events occurred around 1:00 p.m. this Saturday in a Canal field located at the confluence of Pablo Iglesias avenue with San Francisco de Sales street. For unknown reasons, the referee who was whistling a women's game fell to the ground due to a possible heart attack.

Two players who are health workers arrived at the place, supported by a doctor who was in the stands. They notified 112 and cardiopulmonary resuscitation maneuvers began. In addition, they requested the defibrillator from the facilities, which they used, making the referee come out of the stop and regain consciousness and orientation.

He was then treated by the Samur-Civil Protection health workers, who stabilized him and transferred him to the Hospital Clínico de Madrid with a good prognosis. There you will be examined to find out the causes of heart failure.
