VIDEO: The City of Glendale honored a high school senior who helped save the life of a school counselor experiencing a medical emergency. Just after 6 p.m. on Nov. 2, Glendale High School senior Diego Garcia was walking by the school's campus when he heard noises coming from behind a locked gate on school grounds. When Diego walked up to the gate, he saw the school's social worker, Danet Garcia, face down on the ground. Diego asked if she needed help and called 911. Danet, a severe diabetic, had dangerously low blood sugar and passed out, falling face-first onto the sidewalk. When emergency responders arrived, Diego jumped over the fenced area to unlock the gates from inside so the paramedics could get to Danet.
