Benjamin Ford is a 5th grader in Henrico County, VA.
The other day, he saw his classmate choking on her food and he jumped into save her!
Benjamin said he saw a TV series one time on how to save someone in the event they are choking. Just simply from watching that, he remembered exactly what to do to help his fellow classmate.
“I felt like I had to hurry up and get to her,” Benjamin said. “…I thought in a couple more seconds she might not make it.”
Obviously, he’s the coolest kid in school now. What’s funny, is that when his parents first heard he “saved a life” … they thought this was in a video game!
