Clearly, the show made an impression on Jaxson — because when his sister needed help, he sprung into action and successfully dislodged a McNugget!
“We were driving to my haircut, and I noticed she was starting to choke from a chicken nugget from McDonald’s,” Jaxson told WNEP … “I told my dad to pull over. Then I was starting to pat on her back, and it got out.”
After the incident, he credited Cena for teaching him the life-saving skills he needed that day!
“In the very first episode [of ‘The Substitute’], John Cena was on it, and in the last part, he showed how to save someone when they’re choking.”
Jaxon’s dad, Matt, was thankful his son stepped up in this situation, but he wasn’t surprised.
“He amazes us every day, you know — some of the things he says and does, and his actions. We’re simply blessed to have the child that he is, the things that he does for his family, his friends, for his little sister. He’s a good big brother.”
