Nearly three months after Emil slumped during a training ride, he got Sunday again on the bike... Along with his redster. He cycled fifty miles. A small miracle. “This I had the previous months, never dared to hope”, does Emiel his story. “The rehabilitation is going well. The fact that I still can, is all thanks to Yana.” The reunion between the two was also hearty. The two can, since that particular Saturday in January, friends for life.cardiac Arrest
“I saw them both standing, and thought at first that they have a flat tire. But suddenly noticed Emiel on the ground,” says Yana. “Just as I supposed it to be an epilepsy-attack, but when I came to him, it was clear that he was a cardiac arrest.” The twenty-year-old didn't hesitate for a second, and immediately began to administer cpr. Emiel's compositions friend Egbert (63) called the emergency services. “The were twelve anxious minutes,” adds Egbert to. “Then came the emergency services and Emiel was transferred to the hospital. It was especially hard to scare.”
Emiel was 24 hours in an artificial coma held. How he there would awaken, it was a big question mark. “But I suggested it's still pretty good”, says Emiel. “I seemed to be no harm and actually wanted to just get out of bed and go on with my life. What had happened, I did not know more.” The cyclist is working hard with his rehabilitation.Gift voucher

I feel totally not a hero. I've done what everyone would have doneYana Feyaerts (20)
“But I feel I'm no hero”, responds Yana that in the past some courses cpr had followed and currently nursing studies. “I have done what anyone would have done.” The twenty-year-old remains, despite its heroic effort with both feet on the ground. “I am especially pleased that everything is so well turned out”, Yana continued. “I've been there myself, which was very hard with them. Especially in the beginning. What would I do if it wasn't properly backed out. I would myself always blame. Luckily, I could well talk about it with my parents and my trainer. But I was also always very well informed by emiel's compositions girlfriend and Egbert. When the message came that he was on the better hand, that was a big relief.”
