"He's in Vancouver and some of his friends actually told him about me in the paper," Tristan told CBC News Thursday. "He says he is going to give me the yearly lifesavers award. I was amazed."

Cape Breton, NS, Canada - The man who created the Heimlich manoeuvre has personally congratulated an 11-year-old Cape Breton boy for saving his choking friend last week.
On April 18, Tristan, a student at Mountainview Elementary School in Howie Centre, used the Heimlich manoeuvre to dislodge a candy from Travis Hayes's windpipe.
