A teacher in Wixom took action to save a student's life and quickly became a hero.

Laura Doran saw one of her students, Sienna, was choking. She was clutching her throat and shaking.

Doran began doing the Heimlich manuever. When what was lodged in her throat came out, it wasn't food, it was a water bottle cap.

Sienna's dad went to the school on Tuesday to thank Doran and sent his daughter to class with water bottles – without caps.
