The health teacher of the student says he's not surprised by the teens actions.
Brian Montag, at Oasis Middle school, says he remembers giving Hunter Graham an A during 6th grade health class.

A 13-year-old Cape Coral boy is credited with saving his mother's life after she suffered a heart attack behind the wheel.
Authoritie say Bridgette Graham suffered the attack while driving down Pine Island road with her son, Hunter.
The 7th grader says he instinctively called 911 when she pulled the car over.
Emergency crews rushed Graham to the hospital, where her heart momentarily stopped beating.
Hunter credits his 6th grade health teacher, Mr. Montag from Oasis Middle school, for the lesson in heart attack symptoms.
