The Joe Lyall Foundation hasn't added a story.
Joe was on a surf trip and traveled down to Pavones, Costa Rica - a remote, world famous surf break. He went on a fishing charter and afterwards decided to paddle out even though the waves were small. He got out of the water with chest pain and was sick and drank some water. He took some medicine and went upstairs to lay down and rest when he began to go into cardiac arrest. The police were called and they started CPR right away. They continued for an hour to tried to save him to no avail. An ambulance and a helicopter from los suenos and Golfito were both called. They did not make it in time to bring an AED which could have saved his life. He was only 43 years old. Healthy, non drinker - he works out every day and has SO MUCH Energy & life!!! He was surfing every day, swimming laps, 5 mile walks, eating healthy. This should not have happened to him. There are no AED’s in this area which could have saved his life. Thousands of people visit this surf break annually and they do not have a medical location to assist although they have a small police station. The locals agree and a change needs to be made. Please help us make Joe’s life matter even more by helping to save other people’s lives!!!!
