(AP) A 5-year-old Atlantic City boy saved his grandmother from choking, using a trick he learned in school. The Press of Atlantic City reported that Shirldine Stewart, 56, was watching television and eating Jell-O when her grandson A'Zir Spence came downstairs to ask her a question.
When she turned to look at him a piece of food got lodged in her throat.
After she couldn't remove the food herself, her grandson asked her whether she was choking. Then the boy suggested she raise her hands over her head.
When she did, the food popped out.
The boy says he learned the trick at school. His grandmother calls him her little hero.
