Report says the mayor administered CPR to old friend David Wihby after finding him unconscious due to apparent OD on pills
MANCHESTER, NH – Mayor Ted Gatsas has not publicly commented about the April 3 arrest on prostitution charges of his longtime friend and school board vice chair, David Wihby, except to offer his “thoughts and prayers.”
However, a police account of a 911 call placed just hours after Wihby was released from Nashua Police custody, reveals that Gatsas may have saved his friend’s life just hours after his arrest.
According to a police report obtained by the NH Union Leader, Gatsas was concerned for Wihby’s wellbeing and rushed to check on him at his home. He found him unconscious in his bedroom due to an apparent overdose of prescription medication.
In the police narrative of the events following the 911 call, Gatsas insisted on seeing Wihby, even after Wihby’s wife told him her husband was sleeping.
According to the report, Gatsas began administering CPR on Wihby, who was unconscious but breathing. Manchester firefighters arrived and continued the life-saving measures on Wihby, who was hospitalized following the incident.
