Pudsey councillor organises defibrillator training for coaches following Christian Eriksen collapse
A quick-thinking Pudsey councillor has organised immediate defibrillator familiarisation training for local football coaches to attend following the distressing incident involving Christian Eriksen on Saturday.
The midfielder dropped to the ground at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen shortly before half-time, leaving players from both teams in clear distress.
Cameras showed medics desperately trying to stabilise the former Tottenham player, as his teammates formed a protective circle around where he lay on the pitch.

The event will take place on Queens Park, Pudsey at 7pm.
First aid trainer Janice Whitehead and her team will talk the coaches through CPR and how to access one of the 21 defibrillators across Pudsey, Swinnow and Tyersal and how to use it, Cllr Seary said.
The session is expected to last an hour.
Cllr Seary said: "Attention all sports coaches.
"Feel free to pop over for a refresher, it’s all very informal but will allow coaches to get hands on and gain confidence."
