On 2 December 2013, nine-year-old Emily Ogle saved the life of a classmate, Kuper Stevens, by performing the Heimlich Maneuver on him at Central Elementary School in Roxana, Illinois. She said, “Well, I was just sitting there eating my lunch and then I looked over at Kuper and I saw that his face was red ….” He was choking on a breadstick. Emily said, “And I’m like, ‘Are you choking?’ And he kinda nodded yes.” Fortunately, her father had taught her how to perform the Heimlich Maneuver when she was seven years old. She said, “I did the Heimlich maneuver and I guess I got it out, but I didn’t think so. So I ran and got the monitor, but I guess I already got it out.” To show his appreciation, Kuper bought her a necklace with her name on it and four king-sized candy bars.
