Fourth Grader Puts Science Project Lesson To Good Use

Sophia Tabors, 10, presented a project on how to identify and treat strokes for her school's science fair. The fourth grade student from St. Louis, Missouri then used her knowledge to help her grandfather. She told KMOV news “My other grandpa had a stroke and during that stroke I’m like, ‘Well it’d be interesting to find out why strokes happen and what causes them." She won second place for her project.

Yet, it was only two months later when her grandfather suffered a stroke while the family was shopping at the grocery store. Sophia said “He dropped a bag of apples. He was staring at it and I was trying to ask him if he was okay. He was saying something but I didn’t get it and his face was droopy on one side.” The self-described bookworm could soon tell that her grandfather was suffering from a stroke. She said “I told my mom what was happening and she called 911."

Dr. Amer Alshekhlee told KMOV News “I have no doubt she saved a lot of his functions and probably his life too." The grandfather is recovering fine.
