"Shailyn Ryan is a 9-year-old from Massachusetts. She learned how to do the Heimlich maneuver at a "Home Alone" kids safety class. One day after her class she looked up and saw her friend turning blue.
It happened during lunch in the cafeteria on May 1 at Marguerite Peaslee Elementary School in Northborough. Shailyn suddenly felt a hand grip her left shoulder.
Her good friend and soccer teammate, Keira Silvia, age 8, held a hand to her own throat. Her face rapidly turned red, then blue. Keira was unable to speak, but Shailyn knew she was choking.
Shailyn leaped from her seat, stood behind Keira, tipped her friend slightly forward, then wrapped her arms around her waist. Making a fist with one hand and grasping it with her other hand above Keira's navel, she then pressed as hard as she could into her abdomen. She pushed upward as though she was trying to lift her up.
Just as she had learned to do 16 hours earlier."
