(WTWO) Two fourth graders in Clinton, Indiana are being hailed as heroes after they saved another student's life.
Lane Griffin, 11, and Zac Barnes, 10, recently ran to help a kindergartner who was choking on cereal in the cafeteria.
Griffin says he immediately cupped his hand and began performing back blows until the blockage was dislodged. The 11-year-old said he knew what to do because he's gone to CRP training with his stepmother, who is a firefighter.
The boys say they decided to help the child simply because it was the right thing to do.
"We were just doing our job. We were just helping somebody in the need of help," said Barnes. "No matter how old, no matter how big or small you are, you can help make a difference."
