SURGOINSVILLE — Shane Bailey used information he had read on a chart hanging in the Surgoinsville Middle School cafeteria to save the life of a sixth-grade student who was choking on a sandwich Friday afternoon.

Bailey is known for playing Mel Gibson’s son in the movie “The River” when it was filmed in Hawkins County in 1984.

These days he is vice principal at Surgoinsville Middle School and a member of the Hawkins County Commission.
