Local news crews visited Memorial Elementary School in Natick to interview school employees who performed the Heimlich maneuver on a child who was choking on food in the cafeteria. Head custodian Mark Plant, and Emily DeOliveira, a cafeteria worker, were able to dislodge food from the student’s throat, and were lauded by school administration for taking action so quickly.
The student is fine and was expected to return to school on Wednesday, according to the reports.
WBZ-TV and WCVB-TV have the details and interviews.
