Yorkshire Air Ambulance Saves One of Their Own

Christopher Solomons Wakefield, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom – 48 at time of event (2010)

Chris Solomons

As an emergency medical dispatcher for Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Christopher Solomons had answered countless calls for help from people who'd witnessed someone collapse in sudden cardiac arrest.

Chris never expected he would become the one who needed help. While driving to work, Chris began having chest pain.
"I did not think much of it at the time, so I carried on driving to work," he says. Then his arm started to tingle, he began to sweat and the pain intensified. He tried to pull over and call for help, but his hands were spasming and he couldn't get the phone from his pocket. He stumbled into his office, where paramedics James Vine and Lee Davison quickly realized something was wrong.
