A Beckenham heart attack survivor is featured in a new film about the London Ambulance Service, which premiered in Washington, DC last week.

Former banker Paul Le Vesconte’s story was shown at the EMS Today Conference, one of the largest events in the emergency medical service industry.

In the film he tells how the decisions made by quick thinking paramedics to take him to King’s College Hospital, in Denmark Hill, could have been the difference between life and death.

He said: “The banking life is quite a stressful life. It was one thing my GP had always warned me, he’d say I was like a ticking time bomb ready to explode.

“The decision that the paramedics made was absolutely the most important thing and they possibly could have saved my life because if they had taken be to Farnborough they would had to use different sort of treatment.”
