A man has collapsed in a busy Dundee city centre street after a suspected heart attack.
The man, who has not been named, collapsed unconscious on the Nethergate at around 5.30pm Sunday April 21 on Nethergate leading passers by to believe he had suffered a cardiac arrest.
The man became unwell at the mouth of Couttie’s Wynd, the vennel that runs from Nethergate to Whitehall Cres, between café Bubu and the popular Trades House Bar.
Four police vehicles, including a large van, two smaller vans and a patrol car, and one ambulance rushed to the scene where the man was found to have regained consciousness.
He was taken away in an ambulance to Ninewells Hospital but his condition was not believed to be serious.
A police spokesperson said the police vehicles had attended as they carried trained first aiders.
He said: “There had been quite a few incidents in the area during the day so there were officers nearby.
“We received reports that a male had collapsed in the street with a suspected cardiac arrest. When officers arrived the male was conscious and breathing.
“The incident was then treated as a medical matter and the men was handed over to the care of the ambulance team,” he added.
