Lexington power line worker credited with saving choking toddler's life

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Kentucky power line worker is being called a hero after he saved a choking baby.

Ryan Scribner was working on a utility pole on Garden Springs Drive in Lexington earlier this week when he heard a boy screaming for help. The boy told him that his baby brother was choking -- and begged for help.

Scribner stepped in and started giving the baby the Heimlich maneuver.

"Probably five, six, seven compressions in, he was breathing pretty normal," Scribner said. "But we still had the police and ambulance come to make sure everything was alright and the little guy seemed to be doing pretty good."

Scribner says he knew what to do thanks to training he received at his company.
