Heroic Big Brother Honoured by Village (Sept. 13, 2021)

Award presentation
Pictured with Salisbury Mayor Rob Campbell is Ashton Wallace. On September 13th, prior to the regular meeting of municipal council that evening, he was presented with a Village of Salisbury Good Samaritan Award. It reads:
To a True Good Samaritan, One Who Gives to Those in Need and Displays Kindness in a Variety of Situations.
Ashton Wallace
On August 5th, 2021, 14 year old Ashton was babysitting his siblings when he noticed his 11 month old sister turning blue. Ashton immediately reacted by checking her mouth, and administering backblows and chest thrusts, known as the “Heimlich Maneuver.” His actions successfully expelled a candy wrapper and her colour returned to normal, with her crying. He then called Mom! Ashton’s immediate actions saved his sister’s life.
