Paramedics have told how they battled in vain to save the life of a 56-year-old woman.
They tried ‘advanced life support’ as part of attempts to save Heather Woodcock after being called to reports of a ‘medical emergency’.
But there was nothing they could do and she was pronounced dead in the garden of her Meir home.
Now an inquest has been opened and adjourned into Heather’s death at North Staffordshire Coroner’s Court.
Emergency services had been called to the Silsden Grove property just after midday on March 3.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called to reports of a medical emergency at a property on Silsden Grove.
“Three ambulances, a paramedic officer and a BASICS doctor attended the scene and discovered a woman.
“Ambulance staff immediately began administering advanced life support but sadly it became apparent nothing could be done to save her and she was confirmed dead at the scene.”
Staffordshire Police are not treating Heather’s death as suspicious.
A police spokesman said: “A report is being prepared for the coroner.”
