Young Kyle Forbes was in his classroom this week when his teacher started to choke while eating an apple. He says he knew what he had to do, thanks to his boy scout training — and did the Heimlich manouver on her. It took a couple of upward thrusts but with the second try, out came the piece of apple. In other words, he saved her life.
The only thing is Kyle is also autistic and up to now has struggled to fit in with his school mates. Not any more. Watch this video (after the compulsory ad) and you will smile when he says something to the effect that, yes, its okay to call him a hero. He saved someone’s life afterall.
I agree Kyle. You are definitely a hero, something not many of us can say
