WHITELAND STUDENT SAVES CLASSMATE'S LIFE
A Whiteland Community High School student saved a classmate’s life during lunch this month. When sophomore Olivia Rigney choked on a piece of bread, other students tried to get help from the school cafeteria staff. Senior Corey Boles stayed with Rigney, told her to stand up and performed the Heimlich maneuver. Rigney coughed up the food and was able to breathe again without any injuries. Boles said he remembered seeing the technique illustrated on a poster during his second grade year.
