Man dies after CPR fails

POSTED: 09/6/13 4:58 PM

St. Maarten – A long-time resident of St Maarten, died several minutes after he complained of feeling ill when he collapsed while walking with a close friend in the upper section of Cay Hill, opposite Kooyman last night.

Efforts to secure the identity of the deceased failed, however according to one man who said that they shared an apartment together; the man who was complaining of pains in his lower abdomen paid a visit to a doctor in Cole Bay recently.

But that pain reached its intensity sometime during the afternoon hours and it was while he was being accompanied by a friend to his apartment he asked to sit down, only to collapse a few seconds later.

Ambulance staff arrived on the scene but shortly after they administered CPR, the main failed to respond to the treatment. Because of the rough terrain in that area, the ambulance drove down to Hyssop Road while awaiting the arrival of Dr. Mercuur, who pronounced his death later on.
