A six-year-old girl from Sacramento saved her best friend from choking by using the Heimlich Maneuver.
Aniyah Rigmaiden was eating an apple in school, when she inadvertently started choking. Without any hesitation, her best friend, Elspeth “Beanie” Mar performed the Heimlich Maneuver to save Rigmaiden’s life.
“It was so matter-of-fact,” Principal Judy Montgomery explained. “She got up, got the apple out of the little girl’s throat and then sat back down.”
Mar learned about the life-saving technique after watching an episode of Disney’s “A.N.T. Farm.”
