Nantucket to Honor Lifesavers Next Week

NANTUCKET – Four individuals will be honored next week during Nantucket’s annual Lifesavers Recognition Day.

Doug Lindley and Jeff Turner are being honored for co-piloting a plane through a snow squall to get a patient from Nantucket to Boston for two organ transplants.
