Swiss prostitutes have picked up the manner of using defibrillators in order to save clients with heart problems from breathing their last in the brothels.
The brothel owners in the Lugano area have taken the measure after an old pensioner, having fun with the help of anti-impotence medication, died of a heart stroke.t has been followed with a series of other incidents, some fatal.
"Having customers die on us isn't exactly good publicity," the Telegraph quoted an owner of a sex club as saying.
Defibrillators deliver a controlled electric shock to the heart to restore a normal heartbeat, after it has stopped.
The British Heart Foundation said: "Modern defibrillators are becoming increasingly quick and easy for the lay person to use, which can mean the difference between life and death".
