NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — One Wilmington elementary school student proved heroes come in all shapes, sizes and ages.

8-year-old Seth Blizzard called 911 and attempted to use the Heimlich maneuver when his grandmother was choking. The Eaton elementary student partially dislodged the object before EMS arrived.

Because of his heroics, Seth received the New Hanover County 911 hero reward from County Commission Chair Ted Davis.

“She told me to call 911, so I called 911 and they told me to do the Heimlich maneuver. So I did it,” explained Blizzard.

Emergency officials said they were impressed with Seth’s quick thinking, bravery and calmness.
