Environmental activist dies waiting at Capitol

az-capitol-620An environmental activist collapsed and died as he was waiting to testify at the Arizona Capitol.

The Arizona Republic reports that Steve Pawlowski was waiting in line Monday when he slumped against a wall and fell.

Bystanders called for a doctor, and U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar’s Chief of Staff Tom Van Flein performed chest compressions while another person gave Pawlowski mouth-to-mouth until paramedics arrived.

Pawlowski was a coordinator of the Sierra Club’s water sentinels, which aims to prevent water and lake pollution.
