Boy saves librarian.

7th-grader saves librarian who was choking.
So this school librarian started choking on an apple and a 13-year-old boy performed the Heimlich maneuver on her to save her life.
When faced with a blue-faced librarian, gasping for air and at the verge of unconsciousness, he calmly put his arms around her and gave two under-the-diaphragm abdominal thrusts.

He didn't laugh. He didn't grab his cell phone and take pictures or a video. He didn't go through her purse and steal all her Mentos and change for the vending machine.

I could learn something from him. Maybe next time. Now I need to go buy a soda.
