Three Town of Westport Parks and Recreation Department employees were honored today in Stamford at the annual American Red Cross Community Heroes Breakfast after they saved the life of a co-worker who had a heart attack. Joseph Bairaktaris, Jr., (l) David Ellis (c ) and Ian Chasnow (not pictured, at college) performed CPR when co-worker “Doc” Kashka (r ) collapsed near the basketball courts on May 31, 2014. He spent six nights in intensive care before beginning to recover. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Jaime Bairaktaris for WestportNow.com
