Officials at the Oct. 23 LaGrange Town Board meeting stopped their normal work to honor three heroic first responders for an episode in a local supermarket a month earlier.

There aren’t likely too many more frightening experiences for a parent than to have a baby unable to breathe in the middle of a supermarket. That, though, was exactly the experience of a young mother in the Tops Supermarket in LaGrange on Sept. 25. Her 21-month-old toddler was not only in distress, she was turning blue and was completely unresponsive.
