Heart-Stopping video: Brave12-Year-Old Girl Rescues Twin Brother from Choking at School Cafeteria

Amelia Loverme, a 12-year-old, sprang into action when she noticed her brother Charlie choking during lunch.
In a heartwarming incident, a 12-year-old girl from Massachusetts showed incredible bravery when she saved her twin brother from choking. The incident took place in their school cafeteria, where the girl noticed her brother in distress and quickly sprang into action.

Amelia Loverme’s quick thinking and decisive action saved her brother Charlie’s life when he choked on a piece of mozzarella cheese at Leicester Middle School last Friday. According to WBZ News, Amelia immediately performed the Heimlich maneuver, demonstrating her bravery and composure in a critical situation.

«It was purely instinctual, I was not sure of the appropriate course of action, but I felt compelled to help him,» Amelia shared with the outlet.

The entire incident was captured on surveillance footage, revealing Charlie’s sudden discomfort as he stood up at his lunch table and clutched his chest, eventually pacing around. While some friends stood frozen, uncertain of how to help, his twin sister sprang into action.

«I’m going to die,» Charlie expressed, reflecting on his thought process. «It’s just scary and you just don’t know what’s going to happen next and it’s just really scary.»

«They were all quite frightened and unsure of how to proceed,» Amelia shared with WBZ News regarding his classmates, some of whom even kept their distance from the scene.

Amelia quickly sprang to her feet, rushing over to Charlie’s table and swiftly performing the Heimlich maneuver from behind.

According to Jason Loverme, the twins’ father, it is important for adults to have conversations with children about life-saving topics like this.

«It’s interesting how certain things stick with us, even if we don’t realize it at the time. In this case, she was able to recall something that had registered with her when she needed it,» he explained. He went on to say, «It’s important to remember that you have the power to help others, even if you’re feeling a bit nervous. Taking action is what truly matters.»

According to WBZ, Amelia has received recognition from the school’s committee and is now being honored by the local police chief and the District Attorney.

Additionally, it has strengthened her relationship with Charlie, who said, «I would just say thank you because I’m still here.»

In situations where a person is choking and unable to cough, speak, or breathe, the Red Cross provides guidelines to address the issue. These guidelines involve bending the person forward, administering five back blows, performing five abdominal thrusts (also known as the Heimlich maneuver), and attempting CPR if the person remains unconscious and continues to choke.
