A school cheerleader from Texas was enjoying her time on the Homecoming Parade Float when she spotted a choking toddler with her hysteric mother asking for help. The brave girl jumped the float and performed a Heimlich maneuver saving the boy’s life.
Choking is one of the biggest hazards, especially when it comes to little kids. All those mommies out there will know the lurking fear.
Recently, a mom in Texas went through the same nightmare. She went to a homecoming parade with her 2-year-old, and he started choking on candy. That is when a 17 years old teenager, Tyra Winters, spotted them and went to rescue the child.
Winters is a cheerleader at her high school. She, along with her fellows, was sitting on Rockwall High School's homecoming float when she heard a woman crying out for help. As narrated by Winters, she was scanning the crowd when she saw a little boy whose face was "super, super red."
The little boy was choking on a piece of candy, and his mother was unable to help him as she did not know how to perform the Heimlich maneuver.
However, Winters did not take a second to jump off the float and perform the life-saving act on the little boy. She thanks her mother for teaching her something as valuable as a Heimlich maneuver.
She said, “I picked him up, and then I tilted him downwards and gave him two or three back thrusts. He then was spitting everything up."
Tyra Winters is being hailed as a superhero for saving the Child. Even her school released a statement about her following her lifesaving actions at the parade, saying, “Tyra Winters is not your ordinary high school cheerleader. Not only can she tumble down the field while leading a crowd, but she is also a hero!"
The post emphasizes how courageous and kind-spirited Winters is to save the young boys' life.
The young boy, Clarke, and his mom, Nicole, are eternally grateful to Tyra for her bravery. They were recently united, and many grateful hugs were shared.
