Premier League referee Anthony Taylor has raged clubs to take advantage of the Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) provided to them. The Premier League had announced that they were distributing 2000 defibrillators to various football sires across the country. Anthony Taylor was officiating the match where Chrisitan Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest. He was given life-saving treatment on the field before being rushed to the hospital.
“It’s really important that we get that message out, not just within football and sport but equally within the local community how important these units can be in saving somebody’s life,” Premier League referee Anthony Taylor said. “The facilities at lower league and grassroots football aren’t as big as at the elite level of the game. The provision of the units and also the education for people how to use them can make a significant difference when it comes to saving somebody’s life.”
Taylor was praised from all corners for handling the statement to perfection. he stopped play jst seconds after Christian Eriksen collapsed. “The true heroes in that situation were not only the medical staff who performed the compressions and the defibrillations but also Denmark captain Simon Kjaer who actually started the chest compressions while I was calling on the medical teams,” he said.
