Cyclist down in Camps Bay

Hi All.

 

I cycled past a scene at approx 8:45 on the little drag up as you exit Camps Bay on the 1st little left bend where a cyclist was laying on the pavement, pedestrians were administering CPR, they had put his head on a pillow amd helmet was off. I didn't notice a damaged bike or any blood on scene (I frankly didn't want to stop as there were already a few cyclists on scene and runners), So cannot say whether he was knocked over or it was perhaps a heart attack/stroke.

 

If anyone has any update please let us know. A fire engine was on it's way as I went up over the hill, really hoping that the cyclist is ok and pulls through.

Almost 30mins without oxygen can't be good for the brain, BUT in saying that, I'm sure his family and himself would prefer being alive and that's all that matters. Great news to end off this evening.

if they were administrating cpr correctly he would have sufficient oxygen. :thumbup:

 

This is a great effort by all involved.  Thank you for the effort.  :clap:

Well done.

 

Thanks for the hashtags. This serves a reminder for me to renew my First Aid training, especially CPR.

 

This also serves as note of encouragement for everyone to learn Basic First Aid, you just never know when you will get called upon

It is a great reminder that we should probably all get some training on CPR and basic first aid if we cycle in groups, and make sure that we have our #SamsungGalaxy with us at all times so that we can take 12MP pictures.

 

Always good to go say thanks and encourage the people who help us:

Good Day

This was my husband, Pierre Malan who had a heart attack.

Thank you to his brother for starting the CPR and the Doctor that was on holiday who assisted

As well as the fantastic team of paramedics.

He was definitely surrounded by a team of angels that day.

It has been a scary two weeks, but I am happy to say he is looking better each day and hopefully will be back in the saddle in the near future.

To all who assisted - from the bottom of my heart

Thank you

Nikki Malan

Nikki, thank you for posting. It is indeed fantastic news.

This far in 2020, your post is the best first post I have seen!

Best wishes to Pierre, hope to see him out riding before too long.

Great news Nikki - when one of us goes down we all feel it

We react in different ways but it worries us and we wish you and Pierre all the best
