SEAN'S STORY

Sean Deans

As he crossed the finish line, Sean Deans, 29, suffered a cardiac arrest. He ceased breathing and his heart stopped: there seemed little hope.

Luckily, first aid volunteers David Hart and Steven Gay were standing close by with a defibrillator kit.

I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for the British Red Cross. It’s as simple as that.
