Being the focal point of responsibility is never an easy thing especially when it’s your job to sort it.
A quick decision needs to be made when it is an emergency situation.
Officer Roger Caron serves as a special law enforcement officer at Pascack High School.
He knows only too well the sorts of rigors one faces in this capacity that’s exactly how he saved 18-year-old Sarah Bazzini’s life.
At Pascack High School in New Jersey, it seemed like any other normal day.
Officer Caron was patrolling the school corridors going about his usual rounds but little did he realize his shift was about to take a turn.
He came across 18-year-old student Sarah Bazzini, who looked to be behaving strangely on his route.
It looked like Sarah was disorientated as she was moving quickly through the hall, but stumbling from side to side as she went.
As she approached Caron knew something was wrong, once closer she made a signal to indicate she was choking.
While finishing her last bite of food she rushed from lunch to her next whilst still trying to eat.
Next, the food had become lodged in her throat and, despite attempts at trying to cough it out.
Sarah began to panic when she realized how much difficulty she was in.
She struggled to gather coherent thoughts and continued to get weaker with every step as is so often the case when people are choking.
Officer Caron then suddenly appeared in her line of sight.
He immediately leaped into action as she motioned to her throat to indicate the problem.
Caron performed the Heimlich maneuver and managed to dislodge the french fry that had caused the blockage after a few powerful thrusts.
Officer Caron is now Sarah’s hero as she is well aware things could have ended up a lot different for her if not for his quick thinking.
Meanwhile, Officer Caron downplays the praise but there can be no mistaking how detrimental his actions were on that day.
