But his dad didn’t believe the story that Andrew told him. His dad’s a doctor in the area and was surprised that not only was the story Andrew told him confirmed by Andrew’s mother, but also that the boy knew what to do.

"If they're choking you get them right around here and you just push back like you're giving them a really big hug," Andrew explained to KFSN.

"I would like to be a doctor very, very much," Andrew told KFSN.
"I did let him know if he is to be an emergency doctor, he got his first save," Rene Ramirez told KFSN.
