death

Dr. Kendra Fleagle Gorlitsky recalls the anguish she felt performing CPR on elderly, terminally ill patients.

It looks nothing like what we see on TV. In real life, ribs often break and few survive the ordeal.

"I felt like I was beating up people at the end of their life," she says. "I would be doing the CPR with tears coming down sometimes, and saying, 'I'm sorry, I'm sorry, goodbye.' Because I knew that it very likely not going to be successful. It just seemed a terrible way to end someone's life."

The death of a 14-year-old Christian County girl has sparked a movement against bullying and suicide. The movement started this month after Miranda Campbell fatally shot herself. Angela Felty is the director of the Elevation Teen Center in Hopkinsville. She says she started the movement with help from youths who attend the center. She says the Miranda Campbell Challenge has a Facebook page and had more than 1,000 "likes" from users just a few days after being set up. Felty and Campbell's father say the teen was bullied because she was bisexual.
