In New York, a woman saved a little boy’s life giving him CPR after being hit in the chest with a baseball bat. About 7 years later, in 2006 that very same boy saved her from choking to death giving her the Heimlich maneuver in the restaurant that he worked.

The reason students have summer off is because, in the 1800s, it was simply too hot to go to school, so students just didn’t show up anyway. Lawmakers eventually saw the sense in this and fought for a school-free summer for students.
