As we look forward to another busy week in Tampa Bay, take a look back at some memorable images from last week as captured by Tampa Bay Times photographers.
Photographer Douglas Clifford captured this photo where, just moments after being
honored for her lifesaving act, Janie Morales meets Brad, the Rays fan who suffered a heart attack six weeks ago, and was given life-saving CPR by Morales. Brad meets Janie Morales, center, moments after she was honored with a group of firefighters and paramedics on Friday, July 21, 2023, before the start of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Baltimore Orioles at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.
