The search is on to find the kind samaritan who performed CPR and saved the life of a charity worker in St Albans.

Pan Constantinou, 48, was helping at St Albans’ Emmaus in May this year when he had a heart attack in Civic Close off Bricket Road.

A life-saving stranger swooped in and gave Pan CPR for 24minutes until the ambulance arrived.

He would now love to meet his mystery guardian angel: “In an ideal world, I would love to meet the person and thank them face-to-face.

“We should all be taught how to deliver emergency CPR; without it, I would not be alive to tell this tale.”

Unfortunately Pan cannot remember anything before or after the heart attack, including what the do-gooder looked like.

Anyone who could help reunite Pan with his saviour should contact Emmaus Hertfordshire on or 01727 817294.
