PINES coach Paddy Swayn is on the mend after a medical scare.
Swayn was taken to Frankston Hospital for emergency pacemaker surgery after suffering from a “cardiac episode at home”, Peninsula Health says.
Swayn said “on behalf of my family and I, we would like to thank the Ambulance Victoria staff, and all the nurses and doctors at Peninsula Health for their professionalism and level of care.”
“Everyone ensured I was safe and quickly on that road to recovery, all the while keeping my wife informed during some difficult hours. I feel extremely fortunate to live in a state that has such a great level of medical knowledge, resources and care for its citizens,” the 2018 MPNFL premiership coach said.
Pines’ season is due to kick off against Frankston YCW under lights at Frankston Park on 9 April.
