  • Friends in deed

    On Sunday afternoon, Alex Thomas sat on a porch swing surrounded by family and friends. That wouldn’t seem noteworthy, except that a week earlier at that time, she was at Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville waiting to check out.
    On May 25, Alex spent two to three minutes passed out and underwater, pinned by a Kubota rugged terrain vehicle. She was revived when friends Alyssa McRay, Cameron Goodin and Jacob Marples were able to push the RTV off her, and Jacob, administered CPR.
