Boy With Autism Saves Choking Friend

Boy With Autism Saves Choking Friend

MYFOXNY.COM - Lunch time turned frightening for a boy in Valley Stream, Long Island.

Nicholas Landecho choked on a taco in the school cafeteria. Teachers patted him on the back trying to help, but it was a nine-year-old classmate who ultimately saved Nicholas.

The boys and their mothers appeared on Good Day New York to talk about the event.

"The taco got stuck in my throat. I drank some milk. I went to the aides. I couldn't breathe, " said Nicholas. "Marken ran over."

That's when Marken Suaza put his arms around Nicholas' stomach and performed the Heimlich Maneuver.
