15-year-old boy arrested in connection with destroyed defibrillator

A 15-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with a defibrillator which was destroyed in Arklow last week.

Gardai in Arklow confirmed a 15-year-old boy had been arrested and was released without charge pending further enquiries.

There was national outcry when the incident was reported last week, with Dr David Menzies, Medical Director of CFR calling for any interference with a defibrillator to be classed as a criminal offence.

Arklow Community First Responder and WWCFR member John Summers backed the call from David Menzies and thanked both the community and business community of Arklow for the response in replacing the damaged life-saving equipment.
