 Four-Year-Old Boy Rescued His School Friend from Choking

Harvey Price, a 4-year-old from Caerphilly County, South East Wales, noticed that his classmate, Aniya, was choking on her lunch. Before any of the adults present could act, little Harvey had already smacked Aniya repeatedly on her back, dislodging the food that was making her choke, effectively saving her life.

Most 4-year-olds are not quick thinkers. Instead of being aware of their surroundings, most are ruled by whoever just stole their favorite toy or when the next snack time will occur. With his quick thinking, Price earned the nickname "Dr. Harvey" and the admiration of his classmates at Pantside Primary School.

Aniya's mother, Sinead Williams, has dubbed Harvey "an angel," and his teach Kira Watkins was also quick to praise her student: "Harvey reacted immediately and whacked her on the back. He jumped up without even a second thought," Watkins said. "He is a delightful little boy and is very happy and caring."

Dinner ladies dressed Harvey in a white coat and stethoscope to mark his potentially life-saving good deed at Pantside Primary School, in Newbridge, South Wales.

When asked if he wants to pursue a medical career when he gets older, Price proclaimed that he would rather be a superhero. Fair enough. He may have saved a life, but he's still just 4 years old.
