Quick thinking by passer-by in Clondalkin saves man's life

Some quick thinking by a passer-by in Clondalkin yesterday saved the life of a man who had gone into cardiac arrest on a local golf course.

The incident happened at Grange Castle Golf Club yesterday morning, with the bystander performing CPR on the man under instruction from the 999 emergency control room.

A defibrillator located on the course was also used to help the man before emergency services arrived.

An advanced paramedic on board a DFB vehicle treated the man further.

Speaking online today a spokesperson for Dublin Fire Brigade said: “Over the phone instructions from our 999 control room, good bystander CPR, defibrillator and an advanced paramedic on one of our fire engines resulted in a ROSC (Return Of Spontaneous Circulation).

“It helps the patient if early CPR is started. Play golf? Learn CPR, you could save a life”
