WESTMORELAND- Officials with the Westmoreland Fire Department recognize Westmoreland Middle School 6th Grader, Logan Michael Miers for his lifesaving skills.

Captain with the Fire Department, Waylan Wilczek presented Miers with an award at the school's 6th grade "moving up" ceremony. "We gave him a recognition award for doing CPR and assisting us with our life saving skills."

Miers was at his grandmother's house when he said she was walking down the hall and fell. "She face planted onto the floor, and me and my stepdad rolled her over and she had blood coming out of her face and her nose and stuff."

Miers said he knew what to do."We did chest compressions and mouth to mouth. You put your hands over eachother and push down on their pecks as hard as you can." He learned how to do that from his grandfather.

Captain Wilczek said Miers help with saving his grandmother, helped them when they got to the house. "If he wasn't there, there would have been lack of circulation and the fire department or the ambulance wouldn't have been able to get her back."

Miers told NEWSChannel 2 he didn't realize how much he helped. "At first I didn't feel like I did but then I kinda realized she got 7 days more."

He recommends everyone know something about CPR, because you never know when you'll use it.
