COLBERT, OK -- One teacher at Colbert elementary is being hailed a hero -- after saving the life of one of her students. McKinlee Weger came to Mrs. Barbara Comeaux's kindergarten class on Tuesday, ready to learn.

Just after the start of class, McKinlee began choking on a piece of hard candy, signaling to her teacher that she couldn't breathe.

"I saw her eyes get big and noticed she was choking and asked if she was all right and she said no," Comeaux, said.

Comeaux performed the Heimlich Manuever, dislodging the candy from McKinlee 's throat. The grateful student's family sent Comeaux flowers in appreciation. McKkinlee is doing fine and was back in class the next day.
