DEFIBRILLATOR THEFT SHOCKS VILLAGE

By timesecholife on in Latest News

Shocking discovery...

A COMMUNITY funded, potentially life saving device has been stolen from the centre of a Moorlands village.
The shocking discovery was made on Saturday morning 13th May by residents who noticed that the AED defibrillator device, which had been located outside the former Auctioneers Arms pub in Caverswall  had been stolen.
A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest.
The device had been bought as a result of a successful local fundraising campaign organised by residents wishing to make a defibrillator available to any resident or visitor who may take ill in the village.
A spokesperson for Staffordshire Police told the Times and Echo: “It was reported to us on Saturday morning that a community funded defibrillator machine had been taken from outside the Auctioneers Arms.
“We are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.  We have launched an investigation into the theft.”
If you can help police with their enquiries please get in touch using the non-emergency telephone number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference number 259 of the 13th May.
