“Local Heroes” honored in benefit concert

NORWICH – On Aug.13, 2009, 11-year-old Kaitlyn Jackson, (from Norwich) had the opportunity to open for Nashville Country Stars: Mark Will, Jeff Bates, and Trent Willmon at the Chenango County Fair during the “Guitars Under the Stars” concert event. One of Kaitlyn’s biggest fans is her grandfather, Henry Bostelman, Sr. He was at the concert and just as Mark Wills began to sing his final song of the night, Kaitlyn’s grandfather suffered a major heart attack in the grandstands. Immediately, two bystanders began CPR and Mouth to Mouth until the Norwich EMS arrived a few minutes later. It is because of these heroes and their quick actions that Kaitlyn’s grandfather is here today.
