A life was saved through the use of the Club defibrillator located at Club Marbella

In early July, a local taxi driver had just arrived at the Club with Crown Resorts’ guests in his taxi when he suffered a cardiac arrest. Clinically dying for a few moments, he was resuscitated through the use of the Club defibrillator administered by another guest who happened to be a doctor.

The availability and use of the defibrillator saved his life.  He was treated by paramedics and hospital staff in the local Marbella NHS Hospital and is now on his way to a full recovery, which is great news.

What a great story!! Well done to all involved!!
