When Landin Colson’s dad collapsed in their yard recently, the New Hampshire fourth-grader stayed calm and cool and knew exactly how to help. His mom called 911 while the little boy started performing CPR on his father, skills which he learned at school recently.
In the midst of the medical emergency, the kid told his dad, “Stay with me. I know it’s going to be okay. You’re just going to the hospital and I know you’re going to be better someday.” Landin performed CPR until first responders arrived and took over and his father is expected to be fine.
Not only was his family impressed, the elementary school student has been honored by his local police and fire departments for his life-saving efforts. Landin says he wants to be a firefighter or doctor when he grows up, but he’s already a hero.
