Freemasons replace defibrillator stolen from Exeter Cathedral A lifesaving defibrillator stolen from a cathedral is to be replaced with the help of a donation from the Freemasons. The Grand Master of Devonshire masons has offered to replace the machine after learning of the theft from Exeter Cathedral. The defibrillator was installed as a safety mesure to help save lives at the cathedral after a member of the congregation collapsed and died during an Easter Sunday service. The device – which delivers an electric shock to help improve chances of survival if someone is suffering a cardiac arrest – cost £3,000 and was donated to the cathedral three years ago.
