A 12-year-old New Jersey boy is being hailed as a hero after saving his mothers life.
Tamin Eeschaghi was at home with his family when his mother started choking while eating almonds.
His grandmother and younger sister started to panic, but Eeschaghi stayed calm.
"I went to my mom and I saw she was gesturing me to help her," he said. "I just did what I had to do. I would do it a million times again if I could."
"I could hear them in the background, but not clearly and I just knew that I was losing it," Eeschaghi's mother said.
The boy had learned the Heimlich manuever just that morning in his health class. And only nine hours after practicing the technique, he was able to do it perfectly.
His health teacher said that some of her colleagues had questioned whether 6th graders were too young to learn the Heimlich manuever.
"If I hadn't learned it, I could have done it. But not as well as I did," Eeschaghi said.
"Ramin was the only one who got his act together and I'm very proud of him for that. He really did an amazing job. He did everything by himself," the boy's mother said.
"It does seem like their was divine intervention in some way," the health teacher added.
Eeschaghi said he'd like to be a brain surgeon when he grows up, because he likes to help people.
