USA: 11-year-old saved his classmate from drowning and a woman from fire
He was honored for his heroism after he managed to save not one, but two people in different circumstances on the same day.
A sixth grader in Oklahoma was honored for his heroism after he managed to save not one, but two people in different circumstances on the same day.
Only 11-year-old Davion Johnson became an "honorary police officer", by decision of the local authorities, and was described as a "hero" by the officers, for his timely and saving interventions.
December 9 is definitely a day that both he and the people he saved will remember for the rest of their lives. That morning, Devion successfully performed the Heimlich maneuver on a drowning classmate.
And while he had already been recognized as the "hero of the day", the same afternoon he helped a woman whose house was engulfed in flames. Seeing the house on fire, the minor was not afraid and ran to help the tenant get out of her veranda and get into her car.
The 11-year-old received three awards for his courage and composure during the school board at Muskogee.
