Kaelie Burk can thank one of her schoolmates who rides the same bus as her for her life. Austin Medlock was sitting several seats away from Kaelie when he noticed that she was choking on something.
It turns out that one of the other kids on the bus was playing around with some coins, and flicked a quarter towards the back of the bus. As if with anything that you could never make happen again if you tried one million times, the quarter somehow flew through the air and managed to lodge itself in Burk's throat. She immediately began to choke as her airway was closed off.
That is when Burk's classmate Austin Medlock jumped right into action.
