SMITHTOWN - A Smithtown student is being honored for saving his friend from choking at the lunch table.

Cory Wohlenberg was given a Good Samaritan Award by the Smithtown Central School District on Tuesday. Last month, the Smithtown High School East freshman noticed his friend choking on a taco at the lunch table.

According to Newsday, Wohlenberg performed the Heimlich maneuver. Wohlenberg says he learned the lifesaving technique from the Boy Scouts.
