London: People who suffer a heart attack while they`re doing exercise are three times more likely to survive than those who did not, a study has revealed.It found almost half of victims who were exercising at the time they had a cardiac arrest survived, compared with 15 per cent of those who were not.They said that it may be because exercising victims were generally fitter than the rest – but also indicated that survival rates could be aided by the fact that those who collapsed during exercise generally did so in a public place, meaning they got help quicker, the Daily Mail reported.The study looked at data on all cardiac arrests, which took place outside hospital in the Amsterdam area from 2006 to 2009.6 per cent of the total happened during or within one hour of doing exercise.The exercise was mostly cycling, playing tennis, working out at the gym and swimming, with all but seven victims aged over 35.
