FRED saves another life

FRED saves another life

During his recent holiday, our MD, Harry Packer visited Lyall Keyte of Cambridge, New Zealand to present him with a Swiss made SCHILLER watch.

Following chest pains on the golf course, Lyall was taken to nearby Leamington Medical Centre where upon arrival suffered a cardiac arrest. His heart was restarted by their staff with a SCHILLER FRED easy defibrillator.

Lyall says he is a happy survivor having been "given more time".

While the defibrillator successfully restarted his heart, we are yet to hear whether it has improved Lyall's golf game.
