HOUSTON—Tyler Hudson didn’t exactly know what to call the technique he used to save a classmate’s life, but that didn’t matter. It worked.
And now, she’s a survivor and he—rightfully so— is being recognized as a hero.
The fourth-grader at Frank Middle School in Klein ISD noticed a classmate choking during lunch on Wednesday. While other students thought the girl was just laughing, Tyler said he knew something was wrong when she grasped at her throat and her face began to turn red.
