Watch: Manchester United fan reunited with duo who saved his life after heart attack at Old Trafford
A long-time Manchester United fan was saved by two other fans after he suffered a heart attack after the game against Burnley.
The story of long-time Manchester United fan, Chris Madden, who had his life saved by fellow United supporters after a game is truly uplifting. Madden, who is a Manchester United season-ticket holder, witnessed his team's drab 0-0 draw against Burnley on 29 October. While most United fans suffered heartbreak that day, Madden quite literally suffered a heart attack soon after leaving the stadium.
Fortunately, he caught the attention of the father-son duo of Dr Rob and Robbie Chapman, who rushed to his help him. Dr Chapman was able to use his medical expertise to administer basic first aid, potentially saving his life in the process.
Having not heard from his rescuers again, Madden decided to approach the official club TV channel MUTV to send his saviours a message of gratitude.
"I'm looking for you," Madden said in his video message. "The guy who possibly saved my life after the Burnley game. Please come forward and let me shake your hand and say thank you on behalf of my family, my wife and my lovely son. If you don't want to come forward I respect your wishes, but from here, thank you."
MUTV seized the opportunity to reunite Madden with his rescuers, and this reunion was documented by the channel. Dr Chapman was quick to comment on Madden's health, saying "you look a lot better than the last time I saw you!"
The trio went on to tour Old Trafford together, after which Madden invited them to come watch more Manchester United games with him.
The next game for United will be a crucial tie against Arsenal at Old Trafford on 19 November. The fans will definitenly hope this match won't be like the one against Burnley, breaking more hearts.
