- An 81-year-old man went into cardiac arrest at a cinema during a screening of the new James Bond film, aptly titled “No Time To Die.”
- Lucky for Malcolm Clarke, members of the audience that day included a doctor and three other health workers who all came to his aid.
- “The consultant at the hospital said the prompt and quick CPR had saved his life.”
An elderly man who suffered a heart attack while watching the latest Bond movie was saved by fellow cinemagoers who immediately performed CPR on him.
81-year-old Malcolm Clarke went into cardiac arrest at the Odeon cinema in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, in England on Saturday during a screening of the new movie, aptly titled “No Time to Die.”
Members of the audience believed to have included a doctor and a nurse, came to Malcolm’s aid and helped keep him alive as the room was evacuated.
Thankfully, their efforts were successful and paramedics soon arrived and took Malcolm to Northern General Hospital, where he remains in a stable condition.
Malcolm’s son-in-law, Andrew Wileman, said, “Four very helpful people in the audience worked on him for about 15 minutes because he had lost consciousness.
However, those four people just disappeared in the aftermath, Andrew added. He remembered they were two ladies and two gentlemen.
Andrew is convinced the four saved his life in the cinema aisle.
“No doubt about it. The consultant at the hospital said the prompt and quick CPR had saved his life in the cinema before the ambulance got there. He would have died, there’s no doubt,” Andrew continued.
Malcolm had been revisiting childhood haunts in and around Chesterfield where he grew up as a belated treat for his 80th birthday.
He had gone to see the new Bond film with his wife Jacky on Saturday night when he suddenly took ill.
Andrew said he was “completely unconscious” while the good Samaritans worked to save his life using the on-site defibrillator at the cinema.
The family has been reunited with three of the four lifesavers but would like to meet the fourth to say thank you.
