Scout Helps Choking Boy With Heimlich

The Pembroke Mariner & Reporter has an article about a 14 year old Scout using his first aid skills to help a next door neighbor.

Just days before the holiday break from school, 14-year-old Boy Scout Troop 105 member Ryan Damon was sitting in the basement playing video games with his next-door neighbor, Dakota Draheim.

In the background, Dakota’s little brother, 5-year-old Matthew, was eating Jolly Rancher candies, watching the older boys, when suddenly he stood up, flailing his arms in a panic.

Without a second thought, Ryan knew exactly what to do.

I like how modest Ryan was about the whole situation. It speaks enormously about his character.
