My Story this year.

When I was 40 I had 3 minor heart attacks and had been on medication ever since. I thought i was doing well.
Recently had started to get angina after eating so had booked in to get an angiogram done.

Went on holiday to Queenstown New Zealand and on my 2nd day we walked up to some chairlifts so we could go down a luge from the top. I had done the same trip the day before and gone to a restaurant up top with no problems.

Apparently I collapsed on the concrete path waiting to get our tickets. Basically heart stopped. The attendance inside the ticket booth were trained in CPR. Spent about 6mins on me and then used a defibrillator and managed to resuscitate me.
By then the fire brigade had turned up and then the ambulance. My heart stopped again on the way to hospital and they had to use a defibrillator on me again. I was flown by helicopter to Dunedin hospital.
