WINDSOR, CO – A heartwarming tale of brotherly love in Windsor, CO.

11-year-old Eric Ray saved his little 9-year-old brother, Gavin, from choking.

The boy’s mother had given them a peppermint to treat a horse with. Well, Gavin ended up swallowing it and started choking. Eric, also a Boy Scout, immediately gave him the Heimlich Maneuver. He’s not sure if he’ll get a badge for that; but is sure glad his little brother is OK.
