Man dies of cardiac arrest at a popular gym in Wales


A 52-year-old man has died after suffering a cardiac arrest in a popular gym in Wales.

  According to those training at Pure Gym in the Kingsway Centre in Newport city centre, the man was training on a machine at the gym at around 11.30pm on Wednesday, July 21.

Suddenly, the man reportedly complained of feeling unwell to other gym users, before one other man stopped training to help him "cool off" by fanning him with a towel, WalesOnline reports.


 The sick man then went to the bathroom, and another trainer told of how he "had a gut instinct" that he needed to follow him.


 "I just had a gut feeling something was wrong when I saw him head to the toilet," the gym-user, who wanted to remain anonymous, said.

One of the people training at the time said: "It was one of the most difficult experiences of my life. But I'm really proud of what we did as a group. We tried everything."


 A spokesman for the Welsh Ambulance Service said: "We were called at 11.41pm last night, Wednesday, July 21, to the Pure Gym in Newport city centre to reports of a medical emergency.
