A few weeks ago, Jaxson Dempsey, 8, noticed his 20-month-old sister was choking on a chicken nugget while his dad was driving.
"We were driving to my haircut, and I noticed she was starting to choke from a chicken nugget from McDonald's. I told my dad to pull over. Then I was starting to pat on her back, and it got out," Jaxson told WNEP.
Jaxson credits knowing what to do from a TV show.
"It's called The Substitutes on Nickelodeon, and in the very first episode, John Cena was on it, and in the last part, he showed how to save someone when they're choking," said Jaxson.
Yesterday, he received a thank you video from Cena.
"Hey Jaxson, this is 16-time WWE champ and Peacemaker John Cena saying hello. Now I heard a story about you and it really touched my heart. A story that in a time of crisis, you were brave enough to take action. Doing so you saved your little sister's life. I wanted to commend you because the actions of a true hero are those who do act in a time of crisis. Usually when bad things happen, one of the toughest things for all of us to do is to take action. You jumped right in helped out the best you could, doing so you saved your sister's life. I really want to say thank you for being you Jaxson. Thank you for being an inspiration, thank you from all of us," Cena said.
