A second-grader in the Lakota School district was honored by the school board for actions that may have saved his father. The Review-Times reports Conner Beck was saluted for his quick actions when his father lost consciousness behind the wheel on U.S. 6. Conner was able to turn on the car’s emergency flashers and call 9-1-1 after the vehicle rolled to a stop near a set of railroad tracks.
Emergency responders quickly arrived on scene to help the boy’s father, and rail traffic in the area was stopped as a result of the 9-1-1 call.
Conner’s mother, Terry, works at Lakota Middle School as a superintendent.
