Doctor Dressed as Elvis Revives Vegas Marathon Runner

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (AP) It wasn't blue suede shoes but a pair of sneakers that led a San Francisco doctor dressed as Elvis Presley to a woman who passed out at a Las Vegas restaurant after a marathon.

Claudio Palma tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal he was dressed as the King after Sunday's Las Vegas Rock 'n' Roll half-marathon when he performed CPR and resuscitated another runner at the Burger Bar at Mandalay Place.

The 36-year-old was clad in a jumpsuit, sideburns and scarf for the race and may have looked like Presley, but in real life, he's an anesthesiologist.

Palma says paramedics then arrived, and the woman gave him a weird look and told him she was OK.

He says the incident wasn't the only heart-stopping one that day: he also got married at a run-thru chapel during the race.
