A MECHANIC has told of his desperate bid to save the life of a man found with no pulse in a hallway in Worcester.

Despite his efforts, the man, in his 30s, was pronounced dead at the flat in Lowesmoor.

Police cordoned off the flat and a nearby bus stop after the man was found in cardiac arrest just after 8am on Saturday morning.

Before police and paramedics arrived, mechanic Dan Humphries spent around 20-25 minutes giving the man CPR when he found him unresponsive.

The 32-year-old dad said the event has been a shock. He said: “I can’t stop picturing his face. I wish I could have helped him.”

Mr Humphries was on his way to work at Malvern Tyres, Rainbow Hill when he passed the building.

He said: “Some girls came out of the building and said ‘can you help me do CPR?’”

“I gave CPR until the ambulance came.”

Mr Humphries, a trained first aider, said he realised the man was not responding as soon as he arrived.

He said: “I tried. I was just trying to get a pulse. There was no pulse.”

“I was trying to revive him back.”

The man’s death is currently being treated as unexplained and enquiries are on-going.

Philip Thompson who lives nearby on Rainbow Hill and works at a Lowesmoor charity shop said: “It is terrible. It is sad to think something like this had happened in Worcester.”

A local resident said: “It’s terrible, but you don’t know what’s happened, it could be anything.”

A passerby, who didn’t want to be named, said he heard an argument in the street early this yesterday morning.

He said: “There was two blokes who were shouting to a young girl to come down this morning at 6am. She didn’t come down. It was quite a big argument.”

Police investigating the death of the man, who hasn't been named, are appealing for witnesses.

Detective Chief Inspector Joanne Woods said: “We’re currently treating the man’s death as unexplained and are carrying out enquiries to establish the circumstances.

“If anyone was in or around Lowesmoor around 8am this morning, or has any information that may help with our enquiries, we would ask they get in contact with us.”

Anyone with information should contact West Mercia Police on 101 ext 4099 quoting reference 150s 140320.
