Kagel engineer saves student’s life

Kagel engineer saves student’s life

Mr. Bob and studentIn March, an ordinary day almost turned tragic when a 4th-grader Jesús S. was reported to be choking in the bathroom. After hearing about the incident from another student, Kagel head engineer Robert Howell and principal Nancy Martinez ran to investigate and found Jesús unresponsive in the bathroom. Howell sprang into action and began performing the Heimlich maneuver on the boy, who was revived. The MPS and Kagel communities are grateful for Howell’s heroic actions and quick-thinking. Thank you, Mr. Bob!
