CHENEY, Wash. (AP) - All the teachers at Snowdon Elementary School in Cheney are trained in first aid, and that training came in handy recently in a fifth-grade class.

The teacher, Jaime Jahns, saw an 11-year-old choking on a burrito and immediately performed a Heimlich maneuver to clear the blockage.

KXLY reports (https://bit.ly/1zWsSYX ) the boy was OK once he regained his breath.
