Grandpa dies 31 times in one day - lives to tell about it.

Quote:
A MAN who had a series of heart attacks was brought back to life 31 times in an hour by paramedics.

Derek Jones, 55, from Hellesdon, Norfolk, was on his way to work as an electrician when he felt ill. He said: "I had chest pain and felt hot. A friend at work took one look at me and called 999."

During the 27-mile ambulance ride to Norwich and Norfolk University Hospital Derek suffered an attack every minute and was revived again and again with a defibrillator. Most patients don't survive after two or three shocks and paramedic Toby Reid: "I've never seen anything like it."

Derek is now recovering at home. He said: "I've had plenty of electric shocks at work but nothing like this. I can't thank the paramedics enough."

It was the defibrillator that killed him 31 times, not the heart attacks directly.
