Herts companion on the hunt for stranger that saved his life


Pan Constantinou, 48, a companion living at the Emmaus community in St Albans, is searching for the person who saved his life on the streets of St Albans in May of this year.

After suffering a heart attack in the middle of Civic Close, off Bricket Road, Pan was kept alive by a stranger who performed CPR on him for 24 minutes, until an ambulance arrived at the scene.

Pan, who discovered Emmaus Hertfordshire following a long battle with drugs, would like to thank the stranger who saved his life in person:

“In an ideal world, I would love to meet the person and thank them face-to-face. We should all be taught how to deliver emergency CPR; without it, I would not be alive to tell this tale.”

Unfortunately, following the heart attack, which left him in hospital for 11 weeks, Pan cannot remember anything that happened immediately before or after the accident, and is struggling to recall what the stranger looked like.

Anyone with any information is encouraged to contact the team at Emmaus Hertfordshire by calling 01727 817294.
