“He has always indicated that he wants to be an EMT. “So he got to put that desire into action and immediately saved that young man,” said Johnson’s principal Latricia Dawkins in conversation with Enid News & Eagle.
On the same day, Johnson’s interest in being an EMT came to light after he noticed a house fire and a lady using who was using a walker was leaving the home.
“She was on her porch. But I thought, being a good citizen, I would cross and help her get into her truck and leave,” he said.
On Tuesday, the Muskogee County Sheriff’s Office took to Facebook and address Johnson’s courage.
“Davyon performed the Heimlich maneuver on a classmate on December 9, and that evening helped a woman from her house that was on fire,” the post said, in part.
They added: “We are all so proud of you, Davyon!!”
According to Blavity, Latoya Johnson, Johnson’s mom, said that she’s “proud” and added that her son’s awareness that day and possibly attributed his fondness to her brother, Wendell Johnson, an emergency medical technician.
