Madame, Monsieur, lors du dernier marathon de Berlin du 29 septembre 2002, au 25 ème kilomètre, jai été victime dun infarctus. Grâce à votre excellente organisation, les services de secours sont intervenus très rapidement. Jai été réanimé sur place et ensuite transporté à lHôpital Universitaire Benjamen Franklin de Berlin où jai subi 3 coronarographies. Après 20 jours dhôpital, soit le 16 octobre, jai pu regagner mon domicile en Suisse.

Grâce à la compétence et à la rapidité dintervention de votre Team Médicale, je fais toujours partie du monde des vivant. Je tiens à vous exprimer ma plus vive reconnaissance ainsi que mes remerciements les plus sincères.

From the depths of my heart, I would like to share my deep respect and great gratitude to you.
