A group of first-graders saved their teacher when she became unconscious in the middle of class.
On January 20th, in Cedar Hill Elementary School, a first-grade class was enjoying the day singing and dancing with their teacher Tracy Hodgers.
Suddenly Tracy began to feel ill and sat down. As she started to shiver, she asked the kids to get help. Shortly after that, Tracy became unconscious, and the brave kids were able to get help fast enough to rescue their teacher.
“I sat down, and one of my students sitting at the table – I couldn’t even make out the children at the table,” Hodges said. “He asked me what was going on, and at that time, I knew something was up, so I asked them to go get help, and they did, and that’s the last thing I remember.”
The cause of this terrifying situation was a seizure that she suffered during class provoked by COVID-19.
On Wednesday morning, the heroes that saved their teacher were celebrated in a ceremony attended by family and the school—receiving certificates and cheers for their bravery.
“God put me in their little hands that day, and they took action to help me,” Hodges said on a Facebook post shared by the Limestone County Schools. “It’s only fitting they’re being recognized.”
