Andrew Wilding went into cardiac arrest and a SARS critical care team was mobilised to support paramedics at the scene. Fortunately, Andrew's wife Nicola, with guidance from an ambulance service call handler, performed CPR and Andrew was resuscitated using a defibrillator.

After he had been stabilised he was accompanied to hospital by the SARS team of Dr Alain Sauvage, Paramedic Dan Phillips and Advanced Critical Care Practioner, Mike Hild.

"What words can adequately start to thank an organisation that saved my life? These specialist volunteers from Suffolk Accident Rescue Service are truly remarkable. My family and I thank them for what they did for me on the evening of my cardiac arrest."
