She's a Real Lifesaver

Madison Valentine, 11, is a hero to her brother Erickson, 7. While having lunch, Erickson stuffed a handful of grapes into his mouth. Madison noticed that something was wrong. "I asked if he was okay, and he started to cough," she told TFK. Luckily, Madison had just finished a first-aid class with her Girl Scouts troop. She performed the Heimlich maneuver, which stopped Erickson from choking. This Friday, Madison will be honored in her hometown of Palo Alto, California, for her quick thinking.
