Parrot honored for saving toddler

A parrot has been honored in Denver for helping to save the life of a toddler choking on her breakfast.

Megan Howard was baby-sitting in her home in November when she heard her bird — a Quaker parrot named Willie — flapping his wings and repeating the words “Mama, baby.”

By the time she rushed to the kitchen, the little girl, named Hannah, was already turning blue. Howard performed the Heimlich maneuver, dislodging the food stuck in the girl’s throat.

Willie was given the local Red Cross chapter’s Animal Lifesaver Award at a ceremony attended by Colorado Gov. Bill Riter and Mayor John Hickenlooper.
