Four people saved the life of a man who suffered a heart attack at a cinema while watching the new James Bond film, No Time To Die.

Malcolm Clarke, 81, went into cardiac arrest on Saturday October 2 during a screening of the new blockbuster, the Star reports.

Four members of the audience, one of whom is believed to have been a doctor, came to his aid and helped keep him alive as the Odeon cinema was evacuated.

Fortunately, their efforts kept Malcolm alive and paramedics soon arrived and took him to hospital.

Now his family are appealing to find the four audience members who helped keep him alive.

Malcolm’s son in law, Andrew Wileman, said: “Four very helpful people in the audience worked on him for about 15 minutes because he had lost consciousness. Those four people just disappeared in the aftermath, it was two ladies and two gentlemen.

"Malcolm’s wife, Jacky, wants to find the people that helped him and kept him alive, just to say thank you.”

‘It looks like he is going to be fine’

Malcolm and his wife Jacky came to Sheffield for a weekend break as a delayed 80th birthday present.

Andrew said that Malcolm is now in a critical but stable condition and added: “It looks like he is going to be fine.”

The incident occurred at the beginning of the 7pm screening of No Time To Die in screen two of Odeon Luxe, at Arundel Gate.
