Bay County Executive Jim Barcia presented a proclamation Tuesday, May 21 declaring May 28th as Duylan Paul Day during the Board of Commissioners meeting.

Paul, an 11-year-old from Essexville, recently performed the Heimlich Maneuver to save the life of his choking 5th grade teacher at Bay City All Saints Elementary School. The boy says he learned the chest compression technique while watching a You Tube video. His family looked on during the proclamation ceremony.
