Our family has been vacationing on AMI for many years. One of our usual activities is dipping for sand fleas at Bayfront Park near the Anna Maria City Pier. We were there on the evening of Wednesday April 9 when our husband, father and grandfather collapsed on the beach in full cardiac arrest. There were several people on the beach that rushed over to help including some young guys who performed CPR until paramedics arrived and took over. According to the ER doctor at Blake Medical Center these guys likely saved his life with their quick and competent action. We returned to the beach the next night hoping to thank them but the beach was deserted.
Our dad is doing amazingly well (for 83 years young) and is still at Blake recovering. He is a tough old bird! Everyone we have come in contact with since this incident has been so nice and helpful. We want to express our thanks and appreciation to the people on the beach, the 911 dispatcher, paramedics, the excellent staff at Blake Medical Center CVICU, and Anna Maria Island Accommodations for allowing us to overstay our original lease on our rented condo. Without the quick action of the guys on the beach and the excellent paramedics he most likely wouldn’t still be here.
We should be able to return to Michigan soon but will always remember how well we were treated by the local people here.

Comments: The name of City Pier Park is fine. Rex Hagen should stop pouting because the commissioners didn't accept his donation with conditions. It sounded like a bribe to me. The trees are flourishing and the park will look and feel better without parking and bathrooms. If Hagen really cares about it, he should give back the money so the additional improvements can arrive sooner.

Comments: How many of you rented before you
moved to Anna Maria Island.You seem to forget that part of your complaints.
You are being very hipocritical and
pompous.

Comments: Now we know the name of Carmel Monti's slush Fund-Grassy Point! It probably also paid for the childlike drawings of his gondola proposal. When is Holmes Beach going to wake up? The City is creating more sign pollution with the additional crosswalk and stop signs. The residents are getting the old bait and switch trick. Disney is in Orlando. We don't need it here.
