A man was removed from a suspected brothel in Letterkenny after suffering a suspected heart attack.
The incident happened at an apartment complex at Lower Main Street in the town.
The man, who is in his mid 50s, had called to the brothel to use the service of local prostitutes.
However, while engaged in a sex act, the man began to complex of chest pains.
The prostitute was so concerned for the man’s wellbeing that she phoned the emergency services.
An ambulance attended the scene at an apartment complex.
The man, who is understood to have a history of heart trouble, was rushed to Letterkenny University Hospital for treatment.
A source said “In fairness to the woman, she called the ambulance very quickly and the man was taken to hospital and received treatment.”
In recent weeks local gardai have raided a number of brothels in the Letterkenny area in a bid to clamp down on the vice trade in the town.
In one raid, a 75 year old pensioner was questioned by Gardai after being found in an apartment being rented for use a brothel.
In a separate raid recently, Gardai raided another premises and found €18,000 in Western Union receipts sent to Romania – the profits from prostitution over a two week period over Christmas.Tags:
