(Scroll down for video) A woman nearly died of a broken heart while watching her dog being put down.
A veterinarian in England, had to work fast to save the life of the woman who suffered a heart attack in his office.
The 30-year-old mother brought her family dog to be put down when she had a heart attack. Lizzie Bevis
visited the Quarrington Veterinary Surgery in Sleaford, Lincolnshire.
She was accompanied by her mother, Denise Draycott, 55, and her sister, Christine Draycott, 22, with her 7-year-old Jack Russell, named Daisy.
When veterinarian Matthew Fry shaved the leg of the dog in preparation for the injection, Bevis began feeling unwell and she had to sit down.
However, seconds after the dog was given the lethal dose, Bevis started making loud noises before she stopped breathing. She collapsed on the floor and turned blue.
Wasting no time, Fry and his nurse gave her oxygen and dialed 999 while he performed CPR to save her life.
Paramedics arrived and took Bevis to a hospital, where she was placed in a medically induced coma for two days.
She was then transferred to Nottingham City Hospital’s Acute and Cardiac Unit, where it was discovered that Bevis suffers from Long QT syndrome, a rare heart condition where stress can be fatal.
