Colin went to check the defibrillator in Bruton on Wednesday morning and found that the cabinet had been opened and that the defibrillator was gone.
We reported this to South West Ambulance Service and they checked the records and found that it had been used in an incident that morning.
Later on in the morning, we were contacted by a representative of Heartbeat South West who had been contacted by Shepton Mallet police. “Your Bruton defib was successfully used by the Police to resuscitate someone“.
The defibrillator is now back in the cabinet but will need purchase new pads and other items before it is ready for use again.
Many thanks to all of those who helped towards getting the defibrillator in Bruton.
