Durham Middle Student Saves Friend’s Life With Health Class Lessons

Kudos to Durham Middle eighth grader Dylan Law, who recently saved his friend’s life after a skateboarding accident. Sandy Cox of Durham passed along Dylan’s story:

When out for a ride on their skateboards, Dylan’s friend fell, hitting his head. Realizing his friend was in need of medical attention, Dylan remembered what he had learned in Mr. Graves’ seventh grade health class. He began following the steps in an emergency situation, placing his friend in the recovery position. Dylan then flagged down a passing car to call for medical help and ran to get his friend’s parents. Due to his courage, cool thinking and Mr. Graves’ training, Dylan saved a friend’s life. Way to go Dylan!
