PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The family of a 13-year-old have thanked ambulance crews after she was brought "back to life" after going into cardiac arrest on the way to school in Huntingdon. The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) and Magpas Air Ambulance have since been nominated for a national award after saving Daisy Webb's life. Daisy Webb, 13, was walking to school in Huntingdon in April when she suddenly fell to her knees. The teen lost consciousness and stopped breathing. Crew members from the EEAST, Grace Lemin, Harrison Galgut and Charlie Harris arrived on the scene within minutes to discover Daisy had gone into cardiac arrest. They swiftly began CPR and shocked Daisy’s heart until her pulse returned.

The team performed a rapid general anaesthetic on the incident scene which is usually a procedure only available in a hospital. This procedure was to protect Daisy’s vital functions before she was transferred by land to Addenbrooke’s Hospital. Here she received further care and has since made a full recovery. Daisy, along with her parents John and Lisa have since visited the Huntingdon Ambulance Station to meet the team and thank them in person. John, who is a retired police officer who now works in patient transport for the NHS said: “We would like to thank everybody who helped Daisy. They were all a credit to the NHS.” Lisa, who is an assistant client accountant, added: “Words cannot express how grateful I am to everyone who helped Daisy that day. Everyone was in the right place.

.” After their life-saving efforts to save the 13-year-old, crews from EEAST and Magpas Air Ambulance colleagues have been named as finalists in the 999 hero of The Sun’s ‘Who Cares Wins’ awards. The winners will be announced during the award ceremony that will be shown on Channel 4 from 6.30pm on Sunday, November 27. Leading Operations Manager with EEAST, Lesley Hall who was also on the scene of the incident said: “We are incredibly proud of the fantastic teamwork showed by our crews and Magpas Air Ambulance partners during what was an incredibly challenging call. “Attending a cardiac arrest is never easy, but when the patient is so young it makes it even harder. “This was not a normal job by any stretch of the imagination. Thankfully this was a very rare event, and because of how the crews reacted under enormous pressure, Daisy now has her whole life ahead of her.” Dr James Price, of Magpas Air Ambulance, said: “Survival from cardiac arrest is very rare, especially in children. But everything went in Daisy's favour that day. From the bystander calling 999 to the CPR given early and the early shock to her heart from the ambulance crew. “To see Daisy and her family now is incredible. It is very rewarding and makes the years of training in Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine seem all the more worthwhile."
