Patel to the Rescue reports that students in a Conyers, Georgia high school, led by Nimesh Patel--age 17, stopped the estranged husband of their Spanish teacher from stabbing her in the chest.

Nimesh Patel, 17, was taking a nap after finishing his final when he heard screaming and saw his teacher trying to fend off her assailant. "I froze there for a second. Me and a couple of other guys grabbed him and threw him to the ground and basically sat on him until the cops came," said Patel. Scott Wigington, 17, son of the Rockdale County sheriff, grabbed the hand holding the knife. Several others helped push the man to the ground.
