David Ducasse from Scooch felt chest pains in his home and later discovered he had suffered a heart attack on Tuesday.
Two days ago, David was admitted to the Freeman Hospital by Ambulance after complaining of severe chest pains. After several tests, the doctors discovered he had a blocked artery and a blood clot, which put a lot of pressure on his heart. Eventually, the doctors fitted a stent and David was permitted to go back home after two days.
Ducasse spoke of the incident to the South Shields Gazette:
‘I had dropped my partner off at Newcastle train station and had been to the gym but when I got home I started to have chest pains. I thought it was due to some medication I was on, or indigestion, so I took some indigestion tablets and then texted my partner to say I was going to have a lie down. I had dropped my partner off at Newcastle train station and had been to the gym but when I got home I started to have chest pains. But as I lay in bed I realised that I was soaking wet and thought ‘this isn’t right’. I stood up and I blacked out for a moment, but I managed to call 999 and get downstairs to unlock the door for paramedics’Statement from Scooch’s David Ducasse after suffering a heart attack.
