A 62 year old member of the Lake County Pipes and Drum Unit remains in critical condition, but is expected to recover, after he underwent emergency heart surgery Wednesday night at a Washington D.C. hospital. The Lake County Sheriff's Office reports Lito Lemus, of Schererville, collapsed from heart related symptoms after marching in with the Pipes and Drum Unit, during the National Law Enforcement Memorial service. Sheriff John Buncich, who was also at the service, says the many individuals in attendance with emergency training quickly assisted the former Riverdale, Illinois Fire Department Captain with CPR and emergency services until an ambulance arrived.
