A public official in his 50s who participated in a soccer tournament suddenly collapsed during the game. He had a heart problem and was in an urgent situation every minute and every second, but 119 paramedics appeared in ‘3 minutes’ and saved his life.
This is reporter Cho Seung-hyun.
The man is lying on the floor.
A woman does CPR.
Soon after, a female paramedic takes over her baton메이저놀이터.
A male paramedic picks up her bag and goes beside her patient.
It is a ‘defibrillator’ that analyzes the heartbeat and delivers an electric shock.
The accident occurred in the first game of the Civil Service Soccer Tournament held in Yangyang, Gangwon-do yesterday morning.
57-year-old Lee Mo collapsed unconscious 15 minutes into the game.
However, the ambulance showed up 3 minutes after I reported it.
It happened to be close, 4 km away.
[Kwon Eun-jeong/Paramedic at Yangyang 119 Safety Center, Yangyang Fire Station, Gangwon: There are only 3 ambulances in Yangyang. It would have been too late if he had gone out on another dispatch.]
Mr. Lee, who collapsed, was in ‘ventricular fibrillation’.
His heart beat erratically and couldn’t contract properly, so he couldn’t get his blood through his body.
[Kwon Eun-jeong/Paramedic, Yangyang 119 Safety Center, Yangyang Fire Station, Gangwon: This absolutely requires an electric shock to the heart. It is a situation where CPR alone cannot revive the patient.]
The paramedics gave him a shock from a defibrillator, and his breathing and pulse soon returned.
He was taken to the hospital and is in a life-threatening condition.

The paramedic said he hoped that this incident would increase interest in defibrillators as well as CPR.
