She was a vacationer from Worcester and former cardiac therapist who happened to walk into the Town and Country Motor Lodge in West Yarmouth for directions to the nearest beach when she saw the excitement at the motel’s swimming pool where a 9-year-old appeared to have drowned.
Kiefer did chest compressions and told the mother to breathe into the girl’s mouth because the girl had no pulse and was not breathing.
