Both Diaz and her son are now at home and expected to recover.
"This kid is inspiring," E.C Police Chief Mark Becker said. "I don't know many adults that could have been that cool under pressure and handled the situation so heroically. This community is a special place that really cares, and Keon is a prime example."
Keon humbly suggested he doesn't consider himself a hero but is grateful to have taken emergency medical training classes that helped him during the situation.
"Everything we went over in class seemed to be happening right before my very eyes," Keon said. "I knew it was a fun class but had no idea I'd be using the techniques so soon in my life."
The blessings for Keon continued Monday, when his mother gave birth to twins, a boy and girl.
