THE moment a husband saved his wife’s life with the help of a 999 operator when she choked in their North Yorkshire home is being recreated on the London stage.
As we reported in The Press last year, Ruth Swift, from Easingwold, was only seconds from death when she choked on a prawn sandwich, stopped breathing and turned blue.
Breathing Irregular, which is directed by Carrie Cracknell, will be a mixture of dance and theatre – all inspired by true stories taken from the transcripts of 999 emergency calls. The aim is to capture the intensity and raw emotion in those critical moments before the emergency crew arrive.
Chestnut, too many garnishes to list
