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 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.

    Media is there for OUR news. Whether it is good or bad news. If we didn't have it, we'd complain about that I suppose. Think of every time you pick up a paper, scout news online or flick on the television, we listen & read it every day. Good or bad. I cannot believe there are so many critics over a couple of newspaper articles, aren't there more pressing issues to worry about and are these critics perfect in everything they do? I hardly think so. I'm sure the newspapers are wll withing their guidelines and just because we don't like what they are reporting or perhaps from time to time info could be wrong, should we knock them because of that. These same critics are likely the same ones who will slander a cashier at the supermarket because the specials aren't on the shelf, or yell at the drive-thru clerk because their meal is taking a little time. Sheesh. Lighten up people, if you want a perfect world where nothing will irritate you or where nothing is out of place, perhaps you better find another planet to live on.

    Also a BIG mistake on the reporters part for not double checking..........

    Fairly major gaffe on the part of the paramedic who advised the reporter that this gentleman had died.

    Just a comment to Touche I agree with sick of mistakes in all of their comments, mistakes being made in pictures published...lets not even go there...touchy subject...should have never been plastered over the front page like that....no respect for family and friends....not what was needed to be seen
    Glad to hear that Mr.Davis is recovering and hope he has a speedy one. God be with his famiy at this time

    Mistakes are made - we're human, but why not remove both articles from the website. I'm sure the family doesn't want to read them.

    I understand that it would be a hard job to track down all the facts, but it seems that ADN has been making a lot of mistakes and bad judgement of what they publish (i.e pictures, letting ridiculous comments be posted online)
    I remeber when it was only spelling mistakes I would find in the paper....

    Dear Sick of Mistakes,
    How clever of you, when you wrote this:

    *I remeber when it was only spelling mistakes I would find in the paper....*

    You went the extra mile to prove your point, I guess.
    By the way, what *mistakes* have been made in pictures published? Your shirt come out looking too blue in the bowling roundup shot or something?

    Its not the fault of ADN - this is what you expect when you are dealing with Big Business ie. Transcon... The paper has gone way downhill since it changed hands... big business sucks - no interest in the people they serve - all they are concerned about is the bottom line!
