The patient was seen lying on the pavement outside Nick's Tackle Shop. 

A police officer was first at the scene and began CPR when the man went into cardiac arrest. 

A crew from South East Coast Ambulance arrived and took over from the officer, and managed to resuscitate the pensioner before taking him to Maidstone Hospital.
