According to News10 NBC a Hilton School District bus driver named Rebecca Gates is being credited with saving the life of a student who was on her bus. On Tuesday Gates arrived at the school and heard that a child was unable to breath. She quickly pulled over and ran to the child, who was choking on a piece of food, and performed the Heimlich maneuver twice, clearing the student's airway. The student was immediately checked out by the school nurse and her parents were notified.
