CINCINNATI (AP) — It was only his second day on the job, but one 16-year-old has been credited with helping save a man’s life.
WKRC-TV reports Austin Goddard was cleaning a table at Skyline Chili in Cincinnati when a man collapsed where he was eating.
Austin says he ran to the man and started performing CPR. The man was later rushed to a hospital.
A few days later, the man’s family came to back to the restaurant with a photo of him smiling in his hospital bed in front of a tray of chili.
Austin says he’s just glad he was able to save a life. Last year, all of the students in his 10th grade class at South Ripley High School in Indiana were certified in CPR.
