1. Football teammates save a life

    Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, at any time. It can happen to elite footballers, such as Danish international Christian Eriksen, and it can also happen to someone having a weekly kick-about in the gym. No matter who they happen to, and which type of pitch they happen to be on, there’s one thing that’s certain – quick CPR and defibrillation can be the difference between life and death.
