Thank you to Ms. Sapp and Jamestown students for taking quick action!

‪We had the honor of recognizing Ms. Sapp and students from Jamestown Elem today for their heroic actions that saved a students life. During lunch a student began to choke. Fellow classmates identified that something was wrong and quickly began to yell for help. Ms Sapp was close by and ran over and realized the child was in need of the Heimlich maneuver. She did the Heimlich and was able to dislodge the food blocking the students airway. Her quick thinking and actions helped save this students life. Thank you to Ms Sapp and students for recognizing an emergency and taking action! #community #Hands2Hearts Arlington Public Schools American Heart Association - Greater Washington Region Arlington County Virginia – Government Life at VHC: Virginia Hospital Center
