Connor Harris – The unassuming waiter who saved a life… and then went back to work

Saving another person”s life has to be the ultimate heroic act, something which really can”t be surpassed. But when someone is in this position, and is able to save a life, it can be so moving to see the way they react afterwards. In this case, the hero simply went back to work. They didn”t stop what they were doing, or wait around for praise – they just continued to do what they were doing before. And this is what makes this particular hero so special to me.

17 year old Connor Harris works as a waiter in a small restaurant. When he was serving dinners one evening, he noticed a lot of commotion followed by an elderly woman standing up from her table, doing the international sign for choking.

Connor naturally came over to investigate what was going on, and when he realised the situation his training and instincts kicked in – he performed the Heimlich manoeuvre, dgfev online casino which brought back up the piece of meat which had caused the lady to choke. And after saving the woman”s life, he just turned away and got back on with his usual job – like saving a life was all in a day”s work for the teenage boy.

I find it so amazing that such a young person could save a life, and then simply carry on with their job. It shows such a caring, humble and honest approach, and to me there”s nothing more heroic then someone who does good without expecting anything in return. They do it because they know deep down its the right thing to do, and so they don”t do it simply for praise from others. For this reason Connor Harris is a real, unique hero for saving a life when perhaps others couldn”t.
