Passers-by fought to save a heart attack victim using CPR after she collapsed outside a fish bar.
Emergency services rushed to the scene outside Tenterden Fish Bar in Station Road, Tenterden, yesterday, including three ambulances, police and fire.
They found members of the public administering CPR to the elderly woman.
Medics took over and spent nearly 90 minutes trying to resuscitate the victim but were unable to save her.
A spokesman for South East Coast Ambulance (SECAmb) said: "At 12.24 on Thursday we responded to a cardiac arrest call with two ambulances and a critical care paramedic crew for a 74-year-old-woman.
"Despite best efforts on scene the patient sadly died."
A police spokesman said: "Police were called at 12.27pm on Thursday, March 23, to assist South East Coast Ambulance Service with a medical emergency in Station Road, Tenterden.
"A 74-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene and her next of kin is aware.
"There are no suspicious circumstances and a report will be prepared for the coroner."
