He pulled over the Driver’s Ed. car when he realized something was seriously wrong. Reyna started to choke and couldn’t breathe. Security cadet Emanuel Jaramillo, who is learning to drive, moved into action following his training and administered the Heimlich maneuver. Mr. Reyna said Jaramillo was able to help dislodge the obstacle and save his life! Mr. Reyna said he is thankful to be alive and it is all due to his student Jaramillo’s quick actions.
