The luckiest man on earth

A POLICE officer who had a heart attack at Chipping Sodbury police station has been reunited with the group of more than 20 people who helped save his life.

Ben Perrin, 44, felt unwell when he returned to Chipping Sodbury police station in the High Street on March 17 this year.

Shortly afterwards colleagues found him unconscious and not breathing. They did CPR and used a defibrillator and he was taken to hospital. But that was only the start of the fight to save his life.
