'SpongeBob SquarePants' Saves Another Kid's Life

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Back in April, we told you about Miriam Starobin, who saved best friend Allyson Golden's life with the help of the Nickelodeon cartoon "SpongeBob SquarePants." When Allyson started choking on a piece of gum in music class, Miriam gave her the Heimlich manuever.


"I didn't even have to think about," she told PIX 11 News. "I just went over there, picked her up and started performing the Heimlich."

Starobin said that she started performing the lifesaving procedure after recalling an episode of "SpongeBob SquarePants" in which SpongeBob's cranky neighbor, Squidward, choked on his clarinet.

Now another child has saved a friend's life with the help of SpongeBob!

"The Early Show" reports that 8-year-old New Jersey boy Reese Ronceray saved his 5-year-old neighbor, Andrew Gentile, from drowning last weekend with a technique he says he learned from the "SpongeBob" cartoon.

We feel A LOT better now about all those "SpongeBob" episodes we've let our kids watch .... Who knows when all that "edutainment" may become lifesaving?!

Is it fine to insert a portion of this on my personal web site if perhaps I submit a reference point to this web site?

This is often a amazing website, would you be interested in doing an interview concerning just how you designed it? If so e-mail myself!

Jesus Christ theres a great deal of spammy feedback on this web page. Have you ever believed about attempting to remove them or putting in a tool?

When are you going to post again? You really entertain me!

I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crises. The great point is to bring them the real facts.

Have you considered adding some differing opinions to your article? I think it will really enhance my understanding.
