Parrot wins award for saving choking baby's life

You gotta love those animals:

DENVER — A parrot that alerted his owner about a baby who was choking was recognized as a hero by the Red Cross.

Willie the parrot was given the Animal Lifesaver Award during the "Breakfast of Champions" event attended by Gov. Bill Ritter and Mayor John Hickenlooper.

Willie received the award Friday for his actions in November, when he and owner Megan Howard were baby-sitting a toddler. Willie repeatedly yelled "Mama, baby" when Howard went to the bathroom and the toddler started to choke on her breakfast.

Howard saved the baby by performing the Heimlich maneuver but she said Willie "is the real hero."

    There is another one like the parrot: this time, human, the Finnish-American, Wayne Arthur Luoma. Wayne gave his life saving a boy and all of a sudden God took him. May his memory be eternal!
