Teen thanks healthcare heroes who saved her life

Seventeen-year-old Kelli MacTaggart of Greenwich has no memory of the cardiac arrest episode that had a multitude of Greenwich Hospital doctors and Greenwich Emergency Medical Service (GEMS) first responders scrambling to save her life last month.

Residents thanked for life-saving efforts

Hamilton Avenue School, the location for the Oct. 29 meeting, was equipped with an automated external defibrillator (AED) in the case of a sudden cardiac incident. There were also trained professionals in the audience who knew how to use it. Because of their quick action, a life was saved.
