Frédéric came back to life after his heart its stopped beating for 24 minutes. He testifies for 12/13, Friday, September 23.
Frédéric is a miracle. On August 2, he suddenly collapsed at home. “We are having dinner and, maybe a quarter of an hour or 20 minutes before, I am terribly tired. I am not going to bed, and fortunately, because I think I would have died in my bed if that had been the case. So I stay at the table for a bit and at one point I just say that I don’t feel well, I lose my balance a bit and Icollapses”, he says.
“Luckily, a nephew who was there, and who learned the first aid resuscitation gestures, performed the necessary gestures on me, that is to say cardiac massage and oxygenation”continues Frederic. Without his nephew, Frédéric would probably no longer be there to testify. Victim of sudden death, he will be resuscitated by firefighters after three electric shocks. His heart stopped beating for 24 minutes. The phenomenon of sudden death affects 50,000 people in France each year.
