#GoGIRLS: New Jersey 3rd Grader Named 'Mayor for the Day'
Kori Scott was eating lunch with her best friend Astah, when things suddenly turned very serious. “And all of a sudden my friend started choking on a burrito,” Kori told New Jersey’s News 12.
“She forgot she couldn’t drink nothing because she was choking and wasn’t breathing that much.” That’s when Kori stepped in, doing the life saving Heimlich manuever on her friend.
“I did it 1-2-3,” Kori says about performing the Heimlich maneuver. “And food came out.”
The news caught the attention of local community leaders, and East Orange Mayor Ted Green, even made Scott the “Mayor for the Day” on Friday.
