Windsor 11-Year-Old Saves Brother’s Life With Heimlich Maneuver
I was in Cub Scouts as a kid, and I have lots of fond memories of going to the firehouse with my troop, learning all about in-home safety from the firemen. It warms my heart to see that this Cub Scout in Windsor learned the same lesson.
11-Year-Old Erik Wyatt of Windsor recently saved his younger brother Gavin’s life, when he performed the Heimlich Maneuver after Gavin started choking.
Gavin, 9, began choking on a peppermint piece of candy and was having difficulty breathing when Erik rushed over to him, performed the Heimlich maneuver and out flew the piece of candy and the baked potato that Gavin just ate for lunch at Wendy’s.
Welp, it’s official: my kids are gonna be in Scouts.
Way to go, Erik!
