Hockey player goes into cardiac arrest, saved by teammates
An ambulance in Ottawa.
A 50-year-old man who had a heart attack while playing recreational hockey on St. Patrick's Day was saved by teammates who started CPR and used a nearby defibrillator.
Paramedics received the call just before 9:30 p.m. Friday from the ice at Carleton University.
Dispatch informed the team of the location of the closest defibrillator, and one of the other players on the team applied the device to the man. When paramedics arrived a few minutes later, the man was awake and talking.
He was taken to The Ottawa Hospital and was in stable condition.
