‘Heimlich Heroes’ Honored by Board

e-Connections Post Caroline Wenzel

Elspeth “Beanie” Mar and Anthony Roy Jr. were honored by SCUSD’s Board of Education on Friday as “Stellar Students” for their quick-thinking and bold actions that may have saved the life of fellow Caroline Wenzel Elementary School first-grader Aniyah Rigmaiden. When Aniyah was choking on an apple at lunch, Anthony told others and Beanie performed the Heimlich maneuver, which she learned from Disney Channel sitcom “A.N.T.

Farm.” For their heroic actions, the Disney Channel is flying all three children and their families to Hollywood for a red carpet event at which they’ll meet the show’s stars.
