Wyoming Assistant Athletic Director Tim Harkins was on the phone with veteran college football reporter Natalie Meisler on Wednesday when she suffered a major stroke.
Harkins heard Meisler's sentences break up and sprung into action.
It may have saved her life.
He told Wyoming assistant media relations director Amy Dambro to look up Meisler's address. Danbro contacted Colorado State Senior Associate Athletic director Gary Ozzello, who found the address “within less than two minutes,” Ozzello said.
Dambro then called Boulder Police and gave them Meisler's address. She stayed on the phone with Meisler who had stopped talking but was still breathing.
“I could hear [Boulder police] knock on the door and I told Natalie it was the police and the fire department and the ambulance and I told her not to try to get the door,” Dambro told Yahoo!. “I told her they were gonna come in and get her. If you said her name, she responded, because a couple times I was worried she wasn’t there. But then you could hear her breathing.”
