A Thirteen year Autistic boy from Long Island saved his classmate's life using a technique he learned by watching SpongeBob SquarePants.

Whoever dreamed that an animated sea sponge that lives under the sea in a pineapple would indirectly  save a life?
According to CBS 6 Albany:

Brandon Williams was eating lunch at Barnes Intermediate School  when he noticed that classmate Jessica Pellegrino was choking on a piece of apple. He wrapped his arms around her mid-section and gave a sharp thrust to her diaphragm, and she spit out the piece of apple.

After the incident, Brandon was asked how he knew the Heimlich Maneuver. He told reporters that he learned it by watching SpongeBob SquarePants. Brandon's teacher wanted to throw him a party after he performed the life saving measure but Brandon declined.

Just Jenn and I talked about this boys heroic deed this morning.
