TWO gym workers have been commended for helping to save the life of a man who suffered a heart attack while playing football.
Neil Jaggard and Jon Sims, who work at the Gosling Sports Park in WGC, were given certificates by the East of England ambulance service after resuscitating a customer.
The man, a 42-year-old from Poland, has since made a full recovery and returned to his native country.
Gary Sanderson, communications manager for the ambulance service, said the two had made a "vital" contribution to saving the man's life.
