  • This was the second time the officers had saved the life of a foreign resident suffering a heart attack

A Local Police officer who saved the life of an 81-year-old British man when he suffered a heart attack in Torrox town centre in December 2018, came to the rescue of a 65-year-old Danish woman also having a heart attack last Sunday.

The woman asked for help when she was unable to breathe, and a neighbour called the emergency services.

Alejandro Ortiz and his colleague Román Eloy were the first to arrive at the woman's house in the Peñoncillo area of Torrox where they performed CPR until medics arrived. She was taken to the Axarquía hospital.
