Dr. Esther Tailfeather to receive Friends of Health Sciences Award – U News

by ahnationtalk on October 13, 2015310 Views

In the summer of 2014, Dr. Esther Tailfeathers drove into the parking lot of a store in south Lethbridge. As she pulled into a parking spot, she noticed something amiss in the next car. One of the doors swung open and a young man fell out onto the pavement.

Tailfeathers, a physician, rushed to help. The young man wasn’t breathing so she began administering CPR and, by the time the ambulance arrived, the young man had a pulse and was breathing again. Children inside the young man’s vehicle were crying and when Tailfeathers asked them what had happened, they said the young man had taken some kind of medication.
