AMHERST - A golfer who suffered a heart attack while participating in a golf tournament at the Amherst Golf Club on Friday is recovering at the Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre.

Harry Davis, 60, of Chester slumped in his golf cart early Friday morning and was taken by his playing partner to the pro shop where Amherst club manager Frank McShane and Paul Wood conducted CPR until paramedics arrived.

Davis was taken by ambulance to the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre in Upper Nappan and later airlifted to Halifax.

While an EHS paramedic reported Sunday that he had later passed away, an official at the hospital said on Monday that he is still alive.

A friend at the Chester Golf Club, head professional Chad Pearson, said that he underwent surgery over the weekend and that his family was in Halifax at his bedside. There was no further update on his condition.
