Just a week after 8-year-old Michael O’Brien Jr.’s father was killed in a car accident, he almost lost his mother too. But thanks to the quick thinking and fast response of the Massachusetts boy, he was able to help save her life. Michael and his mother were sitting on their couch chatting before school when she began choking on an oatmeal muffin. While mom was choking and could not speak, Michael calmly called 911, told their address and phone number, and stayed on the line to report her symptoms. Mom was eventually able to dislodge the muffin even before the paramedics arrived but without Michael’s assistance and steady presence she’s not sure if she would have survived.
