PAUL BARBOUR DOING WELL IN HOSPITAL

3 May 2017

Derry Track Club’s Paul Barbour is recovering well in hospital after a near death experience last week.  The popular Omagh man was out running in his home town when he became alarmed at the rate at which his heart was beating.

Paul Barbour in action at the NI/Ulster Intermediate Cross Country in January.

Thankfully Paul did the sensible thing and stopped.  As his heart continued to beat out a samba rhythm, he took himself off to the nearby hospital.

On arrival, he reputedly had a heart rate well into the 200s but passed out shortly afterwards only to be resuscitated with defibrillators by the medical team.

After spending a few days in Altnagelvin Hospital attached to a cardio machine, he will today be brought to Erne Hospital for an MRI scan of his heart.

Our heartfelt wishes for a speedy recovery go out to him.
