LARKIN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A Midland County woman is crediting a cable television technician with saving her 2-year-old grandson's life.

MLive.com reports  that Debbie Florey of Larkin Township says Ken Tester of Aero Communications was in the right place at the right time earlier this week. Tester was installing a cable box at her home when her grandson, Silas Florey, grabbed a peppermint candy, put it in his mouth and began choking on it.

She hollered for someone to call 911 but the 39-year-old Tester leaped into action and dislodged the candy.

Tester's operations manager at Aero is Joseph Massimino. He says the company will give Tester a gift card for his actions.

Florey says he deserves the recognition.
