Anson says he took a Red Cross CPR class when he was 12 or 13. Firefighters arrived on the scene soon after, but credited Anson with the save, saying “quick action early goes a long way in saving a person when they need CPR.”

“I don’t think it was anything heroic that I did. It was just something that I had to do,”
“They all shook my hand and tipped me pretty well, and I got to take home a pizza so that was all right,”
