Parrot Saves Girl's Life

Willie, a Quaker ParrotA parrot, whose cries of alarm alerted his owner when a little girl choked on her breakfast, has been honoured as a hero.

Willie, a Quaker parrot, has been given the Denver Red Cross chapter's Animal Lifesaver Award.

In November 2008, Willie's owner, Megan Howard, was baby-sitting for a toddler.  Megan left the room and the little girl, Hannah, started to choke on her breakfast. Willie repeatedly yelled "Mama, baby" and flapped his wings, causing Meganto return in time to find the girl already turning blue.

Megan saved Hannah by performing the Heimlich maneuver, but said Willie "is the real hero."

"The part where she turned blue is always when my heart drops no matter how many times I've heard it," Hannah's mother, Samantha Kuusk, told KCNC-TV. "My heart drops in my stomach and I get all teary eyed."

Willie got his award during a "Breakfast of Champions" event in Denver attended by Gov. Bill Ritter and Mayor John Hickenlooper.
