Swiss Prostitutes Trained To Use Defibrillators In Brothels

Posted: Updated:

Prostitutes in the Lugano area of Switzerland are being trained in the use of defibrillators due to their high number of elderly clients, reports say.

There are currently 38 brothels in the area, largely catering to Italian clients traveling over the border. Following incidents of heart attacks amongst several patrons, including the death of one elderly man reportedly using anti-impotence medication to enliven the experience, defibrillators are now being placed in the sex clubs.

"Having customers die on us isn't exactly good publicity", said one brothel owner.
