    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.

    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!:floorlaugh:

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