In London, a 22-year-old daughter saved the life of her father, whose heart stopped for 21 minutes. She followed all the actions told to her by the operator of the London ambulance service.

Corporate Vision CEO Nicolas De Santis had brushed off a slight discomfort in his chest as an infection or bad cold.

His daughter Alaia, 22, had gone to check on him at their Mayfair mansion before they went to dinner when he collapsed in front of her because of a blocked coronary artery.

Man survived after his heart stopped for 21 minutes: how he managed it

She dialled 999 and followed advice on giving CPR from the London Ambulance Service.

When I saw my dad collapse, I knew something severe had happened to him

she said as cited by Metro.

I had never learnt CPR before, but I knew I had to act quickly as he was not breathing.

The call handler kept me calm and helped talk me through what to do.’

Once in hospital, Mr De Santis was put in an induced coma where he spent a month recovering in an intensive care unit.

‘Following his brush with death in December 2019, he said:

I left this life for 21 minutes.

I realise how lucky I am to be alive, and life really is much more beautiful than it was before.

Mr De Santis has now visited the ambulance service to pay thanks to the ‘humble heroes’.

I am so grateful to everyone that day

he said.
