VIDEO: Grafton's youngest certified firefighter stepped up at the local Shopko when a co-worker had a medical emergency. That man, thanks to the teenager's quick response, will survive. All of Daniel Dowty's equipment is brand new, untouched by smoke. His time with the Grafton Fire Department, however, has prepared him for a critical moment that happened just weeks ago. "I was saying hello to a fellow co-worker and we heard some rustling around so we went over there and found the patient had a medical emergency. It was weird for a change because of the fact that like my store manager, my pharmacist were all back there, bigger people. And they're looking to me for guidance. It's like 'Oh, this is weird.'"
