Oklahoma Boy Saves Woman From House Fire on Same Day He Saved a Classmate

Oklahoma Boy Saves Woman From House Fire on Same Day He Saved a Classmate

Davyon Johnson, 11, performed the Heimlich on a choking classmate.

We need to cover more stories like this because not everything is doom and gloom. There is so much good in the world.

Davyon Johnson, 11, of Muskogee, OK, saved two people last Thursday.

At school, Johnson used the Heimlich maneuver to save a classmate choking on a bottle cap:

[Principal Latricia] Dawkins recalled the Thursday incident that earned Davyon the honor. She said a student was trying to fill his water bottle and trying to loosen the cap with his mouth. The cap slipped into his throat, she said.

The choking student stumbled into a nearby classroom, where Davyon happened to be, she said.

“Davyon immediately sprinted over and did the Heimlich maneuver,” Dawkins said. “From the account of the witnesses, when he did it the bottle cap popped out.”

Davyon demonstrated how he got behind the choking student, wrapped his arms around the student and “burped him kind of.”

Johnson learned the Heimlich by watching a YouTube video. He encouraged others to learn it so “you can know what to do” if you ever find yourself in his situation.

Then Johnson noticed a handicapped lady on her front porch as her house burned:

“It was a disabled lady and she was walking out of her house,” Davyon said. “She was on her porch. But I thought, being a good citizen, I would cross and help her get into her truck and leave.”

He said the back of the house was on fire, “but it eventually got to the front of the house.”

Now that is a black role model! Kudos to him!

The proof of the pudding is how he votes when he grows up.

Now that’s a kid who is situationally aware!

He has to wear the glasses. They protect his secret identity.

Great Kid

Proof that not everything is awful.

I’m waiting for Mr Obama’s publicly to state “If I had a son, he’d look just like Davyon.”

    How about instead you just enjoy the story about a good kid instead of injecting a racial element into it this stooping to the same level as the insufferable progressive cult?

      Shoot, in referencing Mr. Obama, I wrote “Mr. Obama.”

      I’ve gotten to where I don’t know sarcasm from irony.

      Many folks like to claim race is some white, social construction while claiming white privilege is the dominant, the prime mover in political, economic, social, and sexual affairs. Can I say that pervasive condition is ironic?

      Trayvon’s skin tone appears similar to Mr Obama’s. Davyon’s is considerably not similar. Under,Yang my attempt at sarcasm was the imperfect thought that Mr Obama’s narcissistic self is brown paper sack bigot.

    Naaah. That’s young guy’s too dark.

What a great kid!

Muskogee, huh!
remember a song…

I’m so old, I remember when Boy Scouts trained kids to be just like this.

I hope that kid’s parents and teachers are pleased with him.

A remarkable young man. I’m considerably older than him and can only hope I’d react the same way he did (twice!).
