 A father meets crew who saved his life after a heart attack 

A father who suffered a cardiac arrest as he arrived at hospital and needed three shocks from a defibrillator has met the ambulance crew who saved his life.

Bill Healy, 71, from Mansfield started to experience pains in his chest while he was sat at home alone watching TV on May 7 this year and he initially put this discomfort down to heartburn.

However, it quickly became apparent that he was having a heart attack, which turned into a cardiac arrest as the ambulance arrived at hospital.
