Naperville North student saves man’s life  

Naperville North High School sophomore Jackson Teran is being hailed as a hero, after saving a man’s life during his work shift at a Downers Grove restaurant.

According to a report by NBC5 Chicago, the 15-year-old had only been on the job as a busboy at Carnivore & the Queen for four days when he noticed a man in the restaurant was choking.

Teran saw that the man’s face was turning red, and asked if he was okay. When the man signaled that he wasn’t, Teran successfully performed the Heimlich maneuver, stopping the man from choking. Teran told NBC5 he learned how to do the life-saving maneuver in ninth grade, and said he also watches a lot of 911 shows.
