The quick actions of two local teachers may have saved the life of a six-year-old girl last week. Bobby Casaletto and Kathy Carabine, faculty members at East Boston Central Catholic School, performed CPR when the student collapsed Friday at school.
I've known Casaletto since he was not much older than the child he helped save, and he is one of the most upstanding, hard-working, energetic and dedicated people I've ever met. We were on the staff at the Salesian Boys & Girls Club together back in the 1990s, and Bobby has been a teacher at EBCCS, my alma mater, for many years.
The girl has some previously unknown heart ailment, and the latest reports have her in fair condition.
