A Tadworth man who performed CPR on a stranger in Epsom Downs is looking to find him to make sure he is safe.

Shane Funnell, a 30 year-old coach driver from Tadworth, claims he was driving home from work on August 13 when he spotted a Jaguar on the side of Grandstand Road.

As he approached the car, Mr Funnell noticed the man inside was still conscious but looking unwell, and he immediately called for an ambulance.

While the two were waiting, Mr Funnell noticed the man in the car had stopped breathing and was told by the operator he would need to get him out of the car and perform CPR.

Mr Funnell said: “I could not understand why no one came over. After the event, I was shaken up and upset. I did not imagine I would be driving home from work and for that to happen.

“Seeing ambulances and the police is something I am not used to, and it was quite traumatic.”

Mr Funnell said he later called Epsom Hospital to find out whether the man had recovered, but was told the hospital could not give away any personal information because of data protection laws.

He added: “it would be nice to know if he is okay or not.”

Geraldine Bethell, from Tadwell, who described herself as Mr Funnell’s “proud auntie”, contacted the Comet as a “Christmas present” to her nephew.

She said: “It would be a lovely xmas present if Shane could find out if his actions had saved the man’s life. The man was called Ross and born in September 1953.”
