Uruguayan president assists French girl on flight to Paris

Uruguayan President Tabare Vasquez has put his old profession as physician to use — helping revive a young French woman on a flight to Paris. Vasquez spokesman Jose Luis Veiga told The Associated Press on Thursday that the incident happened on Monday. Veiga says the pilot asked over loudspeakers if a doctor was on board. Vasquez and his medical team got up and assisted. Veiga says the 17-year-old appeared to be choking. When her breathing didn’t improve, Vasquez and his medical team gave her an injection, which revived her.
