A choice to remember
We all are put into situations that we don’t want to be in
and some of us get a recognition for them, some of us don’t. But Thalia
Rodriguez’s choice made her a hero and earned her fame. Thalia, 17, was driving
a car when she spotted a wounded police officer on the side of the road. He was
bleeding and she had learned a little about first responder techniques in the
So, she pulled over quickly to examine the officer. She
learned that his leg was gone but he still had a pulse and was bleeding badly.
She was only thinking what to do in this situation when another driver stopped.
It was Vianca Diaz, a nurse. Thalia helped her build a tourniquet to wrap around the unresponsive leg of the cop and together they saved the cop.
