11-year-old Oklahoma boy saves classmate from suffocation, then saves woman from burning house

An 11-year-old Oklahoma boy was honored for saving a classmate from choking and rescuing a woman from a burning house on the same day.

The Muskogee Public Schools Board of Education recognized Davyon Johnson at its school board meeting on December 14 for his acts of service, according to a post on the organization’s Facebook page.

In the post are pictures of Johnson receiving honorary officer and deputy rank certificates from the Muskogee Police Department and the Muskogee County Sheriff’s Office, respectively. Johnson also received the Muskogee Heroism Award.

Johnson School Principal, Latricia Dawkins, told Enid News & Eagle that he performed the Heimlich maneuver on a classmate after noticing the classmate was clogged with a water bottle cap.

Johnson told the outlet he was aware of the move on YouTube.

“He always said he wanted to be an EMT,” says Dawkins. “So he had to fulfill that wish and immediately save that young man.”

Later that day, Johnson saw a disabled woman trying to leave the house and decided to be “a good citizen” and “help her get in the truck and leave,” he told Enid News. The back of the house was on fire at the time, “but it eventually spread to the front of the house,” Johnson said.

Dawkins called Johnson a “double hero,” while Johnson’s mother said she was not surprised by her son’s actions. Johnson’s mother told Enid News that Johnson’s uncle was an emergency medical technician.

“I am just a proud mother,” she said.
