A man has died after suffering a cardiac arrest whilst playing golf at a club in Birmingham.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Harborne Golf Club in Tennal Road, Harborne, shortly before 11.00am this morning (Wednesday). An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer, a responder paramedic and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham were sent to the scene. Officers from West Midlands Police also attended to offer assistance.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Upon arrival crews found bystanders administering CPR on man who had collapsed after suffering a cardiac arrest on the third hole.

“Ambulance staff quickly took over resuscitation efforts. They continued advanced life support on scene before conveying the man, under blue light conditions, to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

“Crews continued to deliver CPR en route to hospital. Sadly, despite best efforts, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead a short time later in hospital.”
