An 11-year-old boy is recognized as a local hero after saving not just one but two people in one day. Davyon Johnson was recognized by his community after helping save a fellow student from suffocation and later helping a woman from a house fire.
According to KOCO, Davyon’s heroic acts happened earlier this month when he saw another student fuming over a bottle cap. His headmistress, Latricia Dawkins, explained that the other student was trying to refill his water bottle and he loosened the bottle cap with his mouth and the cap slipped down his throat. “Davyon immediately sprinted over and did the Heimlich maneuver,” she said. “The witness report shows that the bottle cap popped off when he did it.”
Davyon said he learned the Heimlich maneuver by watching YouTube. “Just in case you’re in the situation I was in, you can know what to do,” he said.
Later that day, he helped a disabled woman escape a house fire. Davyon said, “It was a disabled lady and she went out of her house. She was on her porch. But I thought, being a good citizen, I would help her get in her truck and go. ”He said the fire broke out in the back of the house before it got to the front.
Dayvon’s mother, LaToya Johnson, said her brother is an ambulance doctor and said, “I’m just a proud mother.”
The Dayvon director also said, “He’s just a kind soul and loved by his colleagues and co-workers alike.”
