Elvis Presley Running Las Vegas Marathon

Elvis Saves Runner’s Life at Las Vegas Marathon

Elvis Presley isn’t dead.  At least he wasn’t on Sunday at the Zappos Rock N’ Roll Marathon when Claudio Palma, who was dressed up as Elvis for the race, saved a fellow marathoner’s life, post race, by performing CPR and resuscitating a woman who had passed out.

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.

I guess it is no surprise that ‘The King’ was at a Burger Bar when his superstar powers called upon to resuscitate the woman.

It should also be noted that Palma, in full Elvis regalia, also got married during the marathon at a ‘run-thru’ chapel on the Vegas strip during the race.

Just another day at the office for ‘The King.’
