    11-year-old takes wheel and moms pulse after mom has seizure

    Three years ago, when she was in second grade, Sage Encapera of Perryopolis said a paramedic came to her school and taught her class how to check a person’s pulse, telling them a normal pulse follows the beat of the song “Happy Birthday.”
    The lesson stuck with her, but she never put it to use until Friday.
    After her mother passed out while driving, the 11-year-old grabbed the wheel with one hand and checked her mother’s pulse with the other, all the while steering the car in the bustling Friday afternoon traffic on Route 51.

    Wow, what a composed kid in such a scary situation! Kudos to this young lady. Her mom must be so proud of her actions.

    What a neat kid! I'm not sure I would have been able to do that at her age.
    If there is anything worse than the sandwiches, it is the sausages which sit next to them. Joyless tubes, full of gristle, floating in a sea of something hot and sad, stuck with a plastic pin in the shape of a chef’s hat: A memorial, one feels, for some chef who hated the world, and died, forgotten and alone among his cats on a back stair in Stepney. – Douglas Adams

    I think there is another incident that occurred at another well-known restaurant. I don't like this.

    Who puts alcohol in a sippie cup? Well, I mean a working waiter/ess.

    Wow, if she had steered the car and taken the pulse, all while drinking a margarita out of a sippy cup, I would be even more impressed!

    That is some serious multitasking. That's a very bright and courageous child.
