A cinephile suffered a cardiac arrest while watching the latest James Bond film and was saved by other moviegoers who performed CPR. The title of the film? “No Time to Leave Life.”
Malcolm Clarke, who was 81 years old, experienced a cardiac arrest during a screening of the new film at the Odeon cinema in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.
The individuals present, including a doctor and a nurse, came to Malcolm’s aid and helped keep him alive while the theater emptied.
Fortunately, their efforts were successful, and paramedics arrived quickly and transported Malcolm to the hospital, where he remains in stable condition.
Andrew Wileman, Malcolm’s son-in-law, said, “Four very kind people in the audience looked after him for about fifteen minutes while he was unconscious. These four people immediately disappeared afterward – two ladies and two gentlemen. They saved his life in the cinema corridor, there’s no doubt about that.”
The hospital consultant stated that the quick resuscitation saved his life in the cinema before the arrival of specialists.
Malcolm had gone to see the James Bond film with his wife, Jacky, when he suddenly lost consciousness.
Andrew mentioned that he was “completely unconscious” while the good Samaritans worked to save his life using the defibrillator available at the cinema.
The family has been able to reconnect with three of the four rescuers but would like to meet the fourth person to express their gratitude.
