Students save teacher from stroke

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Day Care & Education

A 28-year-old middle school teacher lucked out when it came to the kids in her class recently. Just one month ago, she was giving a review for a math test when something went very wrong. She started feeling very heavy and dizzy.

One of her students ran to get another teacher, who instructed her to get a wheelchair while they called an ambulance. The teacher fainted while in the wheelchair.

She recently returned to class to thank the kids who saved her life, telling them that their quick thinking helped her get the medical attention needed. She still has mobility issues on her left side and tires easily.

She also wanted to tell students that strokes are not something that just happen to the elderly and that anyone can have one, including someone in her twenties.

What awesome kids; I'm glad they were able to get her the help she needed.
