H.R. No. 2902


WHEREAS, Stephen Yearout and his son Asher Yearout of Garland performed heroically on April 29, 2009, when they saved the life of another young member of the Yearout family; and

WHEREAS, On that day, four-year-old Asher Yearout found his three-year-old brother, Aden, hanging by the neck from the cord of a window blind in the family's playroom; and

WHEREAS, After asking his brother if he was okay and getting no answer, young Asher quickly told his father that something was wrong with Aden, and Mr. Yearout ran to the playroom; and

WHEREAS, Mr. Yearout immediately cut the cord, breaking the window and gashing his arm in the process; since Aden was not breathing and had no pulse, Mr. Yearout began performing CPR while waiting for the paramedics to arrive, thus saving his son's life; and

WHEREAS, Aden was released from the hospital the following day, while Mr. Yearout, his injured arm bearing 26 staples, has begun an Internet campaign to alert other parents to the dangers of window blind cords; and

WHEREAS, Young Asher Yearout demonstrated maturity beyond his years by recognizing that something was wrong and immediately alerting his father; Mr. Yearout's rapid and correct response saved the life of his son, and his efforts to save other families from a similar crisis are further deserving of special recognition; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 81st Texas Legislature hereby honor Stephen and Asher Yearout for saving the life of Aden Yearout and extend to the entire Yearout family sincere best wishes for continued health and happiness; and, be it further

RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be prepared for father and son as an expression of high regard by the Texas House of Representatives.
