11 year old 5th grader Dylan Paul from Bay City All Saints Elementary School is accumulating accolades after using the Heimlich Maneuver to save his choking teacher recently.

Mayor Kathleen Newsham presented a proclamation during the City Commission meeting Monday declaring June Third as Dylan Paul Day in Bay City. She explained there were also certificates for  treats from local stores plus a key to the city.

Newsham added Paul learned the life saving technique while watching a You Tube video.

Paul was also recognized by the Bay County Board of Commissioners.
