A fire engine and three ambulances weren’t enough to save the life of a woman who suffered a suspected heart attack in Devonport’s New World today (Friday).
The fire engine was called at about 11:45, given it was the closest emergency vehicle to the area, in order to perform CPR on the woman, believed to be a local grandmother. The three ambulances arrived shortly after, but none were able to save the woman. Police arrived on the scene a short time later.
Her identity remains confidential until next of kin are notified.
