A MAN has been taken to hospital after collapsing at a gym this morning (Tuesday).
Police, ambulance crews and the East Anglian Air Ambulance were called to Roaring Meg Retail Park in Stevenage just before 9am after a man in his 40s went into cardiac arrest at truGym.
The gym off Monkswood Way was evacuated, while police cordoned off an area so the air ambulance could land safely.
It arrived at 9.20am, with paramedics later taking the man to Lister Hospital in the town by land ambulance.
TruGym has since reopened.
