In The Nic of Time

Surveillance video aboard a school bus in Oklahoma caught a dramatic scene when a child began choking, after sticking a coin in his mouth. Almost immediately upon noticing the child was not joking, the driver, Ginger Maxville jumped up and began to perform the Heimlich maneuver in order to get the coin unlodged.

Ginger Maxville says,”It was the first time in 17 years she has had to use the life-saving method” in the field.

After Maxville performed the maneuver, they heard the coin hit the ground and roll down the aisle-way. Now being hailed as a hero, Maxville concludes that “keeping kids safe and alive, is just part of her job.”
