TOOELE, Utah (AP) - Two Utah second-graders have been recognized for their role in saving a teacher from a stroke.

KSL-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1X0kAjv ) that the Tooele boys noticed last month that computer aide Gloria Thacker wasn’t doing well, so they ran to the office. Northlake Elementary School Principal Renee Milne says a teacher asked them why they were running and they told her Thacker had just fainted.

Milne says she could tell that Tacker had had a stroke because the left side of her face and body wasn’t working.

Thacker credits the boys with saving her life.

One of the boys, Mason Johnson, says he feels happy to know he made a difference.

Milne recognized the students for their quick thinking during a program at the school on Thursday.
