Man dies from heart attack at Wimbledon town centre gym

A man died after suffering a heart attack at a Wimbledon gym on Friday morning.

Three ambulances attended the scene at Nuffield Health, Fitness & Wellbeing Gym in The Broadway just before 11am after a club member collapsed.

Despite their efforts he died at the scene and the club has remained closed.

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We were called at 10.50am today to reports of a patient in cardiac arrest at an address on The Broadway, Wimbledon.

“We sent an ambulance crew, an advanced paramedic and a single responder in a car to the scene.

“The first of our medics arrived at the scene in under four minutes.

“Sadly, despite the best efforts of our crews, a man died at the scene.”

Louise Hilton, general manager of the club, said: “One of our members collapsed and our trained staff were immediately on the scene to administer first aid before the emergency services arrived.

“The member has since sadly passed away and our sincere condolences and thoughts are with their family and friends at this time.

“In light of these circumstances the club will remain temporarily closed.”

A sign on the club door stated that members would be updated as to when the centre would be reopened.
