UPDATE: MAY 7, 5:15 P.M. – A Henrico County teacher was honored today for his role in saving the life of one of his students earlier this year.
Moody Middle School teacher Brent O'Dea was honored by Henrico Fire Capt. Daniel Rosenbaum and Community Services Firefighter Jon Reinmuth, who presented him with a special commendation from Fire Chief Anthony E. McDowell at an afterschool faculty meeting.
On Feb. 20, O’Dea was instructing his students in his classroom when he noticed that a 13-year-old female student appeared to be in distress at her desk. He moved closer and realized that she appeared to be choking. As he attempted to verbally communicate with the student, it was apparent that she was actively choking and not breathing.
