ER Doc Assisted Mukasey After Collapse
Next year, she'll get a better table:
Dr. Lisa Cooper, an emergency room doctor in Houston...got a chance to use her skills on U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey when he collapsed on Nov. 20 while giving a speech in Washington, D.C.
The Coopers...were at a Federalist Society banquet last Thursday night, where Mukasey was speaking. Mukasey collapsed at about 10:15 p.m. after talking for about 15 or 20 minutes. (Dr.) Cooper ran up to the stage from their table at the back of the room, and she treated him until paramedics arrived about 30 minutes later. She also rode with Mukasey to the hospital in the ambulance. Mukasey left the hospital the next day, and Justice Department officials characterized his illness as a fainting spell.
(Dr. Cooper) apparently was the only doctor in attendance at the banquet.
