Sheffield Hatters stalwart Caroline Whiteman has made national headlines by saving the life of a football fan at a European Championship match.
Caz, a firefighter, gave mouth-to-mouth to Jim Blockley when he fell ill at the Leicester City v Seville match at the Kingpower Stadium. Hatters’ Yorkshire League star Caz said: “ I came down to the front of the pitch to see what I could do.He had suffered a heart attack and gone into cardiac arrest. Along with the pitchside medics, I cleared his airway and immediately performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and chest compressions.”
A Hatters spokesperson said: “It was on Look North and Match of the Day. She is a real superstar on and off the field. We are so proud of her.”
