Stillwater student honored by state Senate

State Sen. Kathy Marchione, R-Halfmoon, had her chamber recognize the life-saving efforts of a young constituent on Wednesday.

A resolution passed the chamber today in honor of 12-year-old Jimmy Landry, who used the Heimlich maneuver to save the life of a friend. Video of Marchione on the Senate floor talking about his accomplishment is available below.

"[Landry's] quick thinking and quick action saved the life of a classmate," Marchione said on the floor.

The incident happened in March when a classmate was eating breakfast.
