CPR success story in the village of Horst

Today, Theo van Heijster was able to receive a DefiSign AED and outside wall cabinet for the small village of Horst in the South-Eastern part of The Netherlands.

In a multicultural neighborhood in this village, people are really taking care of each other. In august 2022, there happened to be a victim with a cardiac arrest. Because of quick reaction of neighbors via the vicil CPR volunteer program HartslagNu, the inhabitant survived the CPR, although the nearest AED was located 8 minutes away from their village.

With this AED, the village of Horst will be more heartsafe than ever! And we have heard that a lot of inhabitants will now follow a CPR-course for free, organized by these volunteers.

As Saving Lives Foundation, we are glad that the AED will be placed under the right circumstances and in the right village where people take care of each other with a great heart!
