Surveillance Video Captures Basketball Coach Saving Choking Student In Cafeteria

If you ever wanted to watch a hero in action, this is your opportunity. A surveillance video captures a basketball coach saving a choking student in the cafeteria.

At the start of this video, a student at Nebraska’s Papillion La Vista Community Schools begins to choke during lunch. His friends around him begin to panic and try to figure out what to do to help him. 

Thankfully, the faculty nearby were aware of the situation. Suddenly the basketball coach Joel Hueser looks over and sees his student in danger. He runs quickly to the scene and does the Heimlich maneuver several times until the kid is able to breathe. Finally, the student can take a breath again and is going to be ok. 

Joel saved this young man’s life and gave him a helping hand in a terrifying situation. This poor young man was helpless and in need of assistance. Seeing this act of heroism reminds us that life is precious, and there are moments of danger when others step up and come to the rescue. 

These people are truly valuable and so brave to step into challenging scenarios on behalf of others.

Joel’s heroism points us to our great hero Jesus Christ. When we were helpless in our sins, Jesus came to us on earth and died in our place. He is our Savior, and he removed the threat of eternal death and separation from God for all who believe in Him. We do not have to live in fear anymore because the Hero of Heaven came down to us and rose again.

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!” Romans 5:8-9
