A fifth grader in Henrico has been hailed a hero for jumping into action when he saw a classmate choking at lunch; she was starting to turn colors and gasping for breath.
“I wasn`t really calm, my heart was racing I just knew I had to help her,” said Benjamin Ford.
Though he was nervous, school officials said the fifth grader had all the right moves. Benjamin said he knew what to do because he relied on information that he learned in a documentary a few years ago, which he watched with his mom.
