Pride In Medway - Stephen Lambert's heroes

A grandfather has nominated a group of people who helped save his life for a health hero award.

Steven Lambert, of Ryde Close, Chatham, was picking up granddaughter Chloe from Kingfisher Primary School in December 2007 when he had a heart attack.

Maria Edwards, a parent who was picking up her child, and deputy head Lee Round rushed to help.

Maria, a cardiac specialist at Medway Maritime Hospital, performed CPR with help from Mr Round and managed to bring Mr Lambert out of cardiac arrest twice.

On the way to hospital, paramedics Andrea Lee and Mandy Taylor worked constantly to keep Mr Lambert alive.

He spent four days in intensive care and was discharged from hospital two weeks later.

Mr Lambert has nominated everyone who helped him on the day and the staff at the intensive care unit who helped him back on his feet in the days that followed.
