The Niagara Falls City School Facebook page had a great post today!  A great post about a hero – a young man who helped save a life. Imagine that. This young man was simply walking to school when he kicked into action and did something amazing.
Here is the post:
Gaskill Prep student Jy’Kwaun M. Platt (pictured here) was walking to school on Nov. 12, 2019 and as he was passing Sammy’s Pizzeria on Hyde Park Blvd., an elderly male was slumped over after shoveling. The man fell down and without hesitation, Jy’Kwaun called 911 and stayed with the gentleman until an ambulance and police arrived. The Niagara Falls Police Officer escorted Jy’Kwaun to school and shared that Jy’Kwaun probably saved a man’s life today!”
Jy’Kwaun – you are AMAZING!!! Thank you for your courage to stop and help!! Simply awesome!
