  •  Paramedic Jeremy Williams was doing CPR on Daisy Devane when he collapsed

A paramedic who had a heart attack while on a 999 call has been reunited with the woman he was treating for the same emergency.

Jeremy Williams was helping with CPR on Daisy Devane in June 2022 when he too collapsed.

Both survived as other 999 crew came to the rescue, and they have now been reunited to highlight the importance of learning CPR.

Mrs Devane, now 33, of Stewartby, Bedfordshire, was kept alive by her boyfriend, now husband, Eammon, after collapsing.

A first aid teacher, she had taught him chest compressions, which he did while they waited for paramedics.

However, ten minutes after arriving, Mr Williams, 55, had a heart attack himself.

He was fitted with two stents in hospital and came home to find that Mrs Devane had also survived.

She spent 33 days in hospital and was fitted with an implantable defibrillator called an S-ICD, which shocks her heart if she suffers a repeat attack. 

‘It was wonderful to meet Jeremy again,’ Mrs Devane said. 

‘It was nice to sit down and talk to him, as we shared this massive life event.’
