iStock(ROCKWALL, Texas) — A high school cheerleader sprung into action at her homecoming parade in Texas when she spotted a toddler choking and managed to save him, she and the little boy’s family said.Tyra Winters, a 17-year-old student at Rockwall High School, told ABC News Wednesday that she was on the school’s float with her cheerleading squad and the football team on Sept. 18 when she heard murmurs that a child was choking in the crowd.She scanned the crowd and saw a little boy whose face was “super, super red.”“At this point, he’s kind of turning purple,” Winters said.She then jumped off the float and ran to the boy, who was with his mother, and successfully performed the Heimlich maneuver.“I picked him up and then I tilted him downwards and gave him two or three back thrusts. He then was spitting everything up,” Winters said.The boy’s mom, Nicole Hornback, told ABC News that she had tried to perform the Heimlich on her son, 2-year-old Clarke, but wasn’t successful.“I just literally was holding him out and just running through the crowd trying to hand him off to anyone,” Hornback said.She called Winters “very brave” and praised her for being so willing to take a child’s life in her own hands.The three reunited Tuesday, but Clarke didn’t remember Winters.“It’s hard for him because he’s so young,” she said. “He doesn’t even remember what he ate for breakfast.”Winters said even so, the two had a good time together and shared a high-five.She’s grateful that she could be there for Clarke, and that her mother taught her the Heimlich a few years ago.“I knew exactly what to do from that point on,” Winters said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Paris: A “computer glitch” may have been behind the fast-spreading fire that ravaged Notre Dame, the cathedral’s rector said Friday, as architects and construction workers tried to figure out how to stabilize the damaged structure and protect it from the elements. The fire burned through the lattice of enormous oak beams supporting the monument’s vaulted stone ceiling, dangerously weakening the building. The surrounding neighborhood has been blocked off, and stones have continued to tumble off the sides of the cathedral since Monday evening’s devastating blaze.

The Parisien newspaper has reported that investigators are considering whether the fire could be linked to a computer glitch or related to temporary elevators used in the renovation that was underway at the time the cathedral caught fire. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsChauvet said there were fire alarms throughout the building, which he described as “well protected.” Charlotte Hubert, president of a group of French architects who specialize in historic monuments, told BFM television that experts plan to spread a custom-made peaked tarpaulin across the cathedral’s roof, with enough space to also shield workers rebuilding the frame. French President Emmanuel Macron is expected to set out reconstruction ideas during meetings Friday with officials from the United Nations’ cultural agency, UNESCO. Macron is moving quickly on the fire-ravaged monument’s reconstruction, which is being viewed both as a push to make it part of his legacy and a way to move past the divisive yellow vest protests over economic issues in France. Notre Dame’s reconstruction is prompting widespread debate across France, with differing views emerging over whether it should involve new technologies and designs. Macron’s office has, for example, said the president wants a “contemporary architectural gesture to be considered” for the collapsed spire, which wasn’t part of the original cathedral. Macron hasn’t offered any specifics on his vision for the roof or whether the frame should be wood, metal or concrete, according to his cultural heritage envoy, Stephane Bern. He has named a general, Jean-Louis Georgelin, former chief of staff of the armed forces, to lead the reconstruction effort. Over USD 1 billion has already poured in from people from all walks of life around the world to restore Notre Dame. Judith Kagan, a conservation official at France’s Culture Ministry, said the artworks inside Notre Dame had suffered no major damage from the fire and the pieces were being removed from the building for their protection.
Bangkok: Commonwealth Games silver-medallist Satish Kumar (+91kg) and the fast-rising Sonia Chahal (57kg) entered the quarterfinals on an all-win opening day for India at the Asian Boxing Championships here. Satish out-punched Iran’s Iman Ramezanpourdelavar to make the last eight, while world silver-medallist Sonia defeated Vietnam’s Uyan Do Nha in the women’s draw on Friday.

Joining them was Ashish (69kg), who defeated Cambodia’s V Y Sophors in the evening session.

Satish, who won a bronze medal at the event in its 2015 edition, quite literally eased past his fumbling opponent, striking at will in a one-sided contest. In the last Indian bout of the day, Sonia pounced on her overtly defensive opponent and produced a near flawless performance to clinch a 5-0 win. Earlier, Deepak defeated Vietnam’s Loi Bui Cong Danh, fetching a unanimous verdict from the judges before Rohit put it past Taiwan’s Chu-Yen Lai with a similar scoreline. Deepak opened the proceedings for India. He kept it simple and focussed on hitting straight to ensure clean and impactful punches. Rohit Tokas (64kg) was up against a more aggressive one in Lai but he hardly broke a sweat to advance.
