Police are hunting two vandals who destroyed a football club's defibrillator kit just hours after Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest while playing in the Euros.
Footage of the destruction of the life-saving piece of kit has sparked outrage on social media as Buxted FC and Sussex Police appeal for help to catch those responsible.
In the video, a young man and woman, who appear to be in their late teens or early twenties, can be seen opening the £2,000 defibrillator case and throwing the equipment to the ground.
A video of a couple vandalising a football club's defibrillator sparked outrage after it was caught on CCTV just hours after footballer Christian Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest mid-game
The footage shows the young couple drag the life-saving kit, worth £2,000 from its case and hurl it to the ground before they repeatedly stand on it then throw it to the ground again
They appear to be filming themselves as they take turns stamping on the equipment before the young man then repeatedly throws it to the ground.
The couple then turn their attention to the defibrillator's case and appear to try and remove it from the wall but, when that fails, they appear to spit in it.
The club said the incident, which occurred in the early hours of Sunday morning, was 'heartbreaking'.
