Today's Globe: Biotech Council chief, off-duty EMT rescue
The Massachusetts Biotechnology Council yesterday chose as its new president a former state legislator with limited experience on Beacon Hill and in the life sciences sector. Robert K. Coughlin, (left) 38, undersecretary of business development in the Patrick administration since January, is a former state representative from Dedham who worked for an environmental cleanup firm and at an investment firm overseeing start-ups.
Crispin McCay (right), an emergency medical technician, had just finished an uneventful 12-hour shift at the annual Dominican Festival in Franklin Park Sunday evening and was on his way home to Dorchester when he heard a voice crackling over his radio. Someone had just been shot about a block away on Columbia Road. He raced to the scene and saved a young woman's life, said Richard Serino, chief of the city's Emergency Medical Services.
