Gazette: Man airlifted to hospital after collapsing during gym class Man airlifted to hospital after collapsing during gym class

A MAN is in a critical condition after collapsing during a gym class at Colchester’s Leisure World.

The man, who is believed to be in his 50s, was taken ill at 2.20pm today and was treated at the scene for a cardiac arrest.

Following the emergency treatment he was taken to Basildon Hospital by the Essex Air Ambulance, which took off from Castle Park just before 3.30pm.

Steve Box, ambulance officer for the East of England Ambulance Service who attended the incident, said: "The casualty had gone into cardiac arrest after collapsing during a fitness class at the centre.

“Fortunately for him, the leisure centre staff gave absolutely fantastic cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and as a result, they managed to get his heart beating normally again.

"We worked to stabilise him before he was airlifted by Essex Air Ambulance to Basildon Hospital, in a critical condition.

"The staff at the centre were brilliant so I'd like to say a huge thank you and well done to them for their efforts."

I think you will find that was his heart and nothing to do with 'leisure world', numpty!

Well done leisure world staff! Nice to know they are suitably trained, we could be looking at a death here if they weren't.

Wishing the gentleman a speedy recovery

You don't go to a sports centre to end up getting recuss. I agree with the pro's How many heavyweight gym's in town where the comp boys train, do you hear of crap like this? That lot down there are to busy messing around combing their hair for the clientèle.
Numpty i think it takes one to know one, naming yourself after a bog roll is quite appropriate what a joke LOL :-0)
I am falling over myself. oh sorry i forgot there is no rrrrr in your name you cant spell or read mate?
Leisure world continued as it started, one big expensive £19 Million JOKE.
