CBS New York reported that the New Jersey teenager began choking on a French fry on April 24, 2018.

It was an ordinary Tuesday for Bazzini, who was walking to class after her lunch. However, as she finished the last bites, he suddenly started choking on a French fry.

She said, “I knew it was lodged in my throat, my drink which I had in my hand couldn’t get it down. After a couple of seconds, I slowly felt myself fading.”

However, she made it alive thanks to the school’s special law enforcement officer, Roger Caron.

The student spent some horrifying moments when she realized she was choking. She then saw Caron walking towards her.

The school’s security officer noticed the student and knew something was not right. “She was stumbling a bit, moving very quickly,” he said.

When he got closer, he understood what was wrong. Her “color was off” and she ran up to him, pointing at her throat.

Caron immediately performed the Heimlich maneuver and was successful in removing the French fry. Surveillance video showed the officer lifting Bazzini off her feet with each abdominal thrust.

The officer, who has been part of the school for three years was with the Woodcliff Lake Police Department for over 34 years.

The teenager was glad he was at the right place at the right time. She said that there was a “special bond with him” after the incident and that he was a hero for her.

Caron said that helping the student was a wonderful feeling. He is happy he was able to put the life-saving techniques in use.

For Bazzini, the officer’s quick actions have only reaffirmed her ambition. She has always dreamed of being a police officer since the fifth grade.
