- Eight-year-old Luzerne County boy is being called a hero for quick thinking that saved his little sister's life. Jaxson Dempsey was in the car with his dad and 20-month-old sister when he noticed his sister wasn't breathing. Despite his age, the young boy jumped into action.

JAXSON DEMPSEY: We were driving to my haircut and I noticed she was starting to choke, a chicken nugget from McDonald's. And I told my dad to pull over. Then I was starting to pat her back. And it got out.

- Jaxson, you're our hero boy. Jaxson says a kid's TV show taught him what to do when someone begins to choke. His father says he wouldn't have known that his daughter had stopped breathing if it wasn't for Jaxson's actions.
