A PENSIONER has died after collapsing on a city golf course.

The man who has not yet been named collapsed on the fifth tee at Ombersley Golf Club.

Despite fellow golfers performing CPR on the man and the best efforts of the ambulance service, he sadly died in Worcestershire Royal Hopsital.

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: “We were called to reports of an elderly gentleman who had collapsed on the fifth tee at Ombersley Golf Club on Wednesday (June 24.)

“A fellow golfer performed CPR. The golf course had a defibrillator and while on the line the 999 call handler asked the pro shop to take the defibrillator to the fifth tee and it was used at the scene, until our crews got there.

“A doctor from the air ambulance provided advanced life support and got him back with a ROSC (return of spontaneous circulation). He was then able to breathe for himself but he was very poorly.

“The doctor from the air ambulance travelled with the land ambulance crew to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.”

We will bring you more on this shortly.
