A LIFE-SAVING defibrillator has been unveiled outside Cwmamman United's changing rooms at Grenig Park.

Defibrillators are used to restore a normal heartbeat by sending an electric pulse or shock to the heart.

They are used to prevent or correct an arrhythmia, a heartbeat that is uneven or that is too slow or too fast, and can also be used to restore the heart’s beating if it stops.

A club spokesman said: "The club would like to thank the Mynydd y Du fund, the Police Commissioner and Welsh Hearts for their support in making this possible."

The defibrillator project was led by Rob Griffiths and Jarno Williams on behalf of Cwmamman Utd.
