Parent Imperfect recounts an incident on Thursday involving a rushed student in a hallway trying to stuff a sandwich down her throat before lunch period ended and the teacher who saved her life when part of the sandwich got stuck in her throat.
When it was clear that their friend was in serious trouble, at least one of the other kids ran to try to get help. The first person she found was Mr. X. We don’t know if Mr. X was teaching a class, preparing in his classroom or just wandering, himself, but he reacted to the message quickly and rushed to the side of Connie’s friend. It's hard to think what would have happened had he decided to first ask the student what she was doing in the hallway. But he reacted like all of us would like to think we'd react, and did what he needed to do to dislodge the sandwich.
