An 11-year-old Staffordshire boy will receive a top award for saving his friend's life.
Adam Little, who goes to Greatwood Primary School, in Tean, performed the Heimlich Manoeuvre to stop his friend choking on a piece of potato.
He was taught the life-saving skill as part of a course organised by Staffordshire Ambulance.
The youngster will be presented with a Staffordshire Trust Commendation - the highest award which can be given to non-ambulance staff.
Bob Lee, from Staffordshire Ambulance, said Adam and his friend were eating dinner at school when it happened.
"The potato skin went down the wrong way and blocked his windpipe.
"He went bright red and Adam calmly performed part of the Heimlich Manoeuvre to stop him choking."
Mr Lee said the 11-week course taught youngsters life-saving skills including first aid and resuscitation.
Adam will be presented with the award on Friday.
