Passers-by came to his aid and his stepson James Jackson has appealed on social media to find those who helped so the family can save thank them.

This story continues after the adverts:


James said: “I am looking for some amazing people that saved the life of my step dad.

“My parents were cycling from Catterick to Tunstall and my step-dad suffered a cardiac arrest in the middle of the road.

“Luckily a paramedic, two members of the army and a doctor were quickly on the scene and collectively saved his life.

“Also someone kindly gave my mum a lift to James Cook hospital.

“My mum, myself and the rest of the family would like to thank these people.”

He has urged anyone the public to share the story so the good Samaritans can be found.

James told Richmondshire Today the family had already found two of those who helped but would like to find the others.
