After Keeler was taken away in an ambulance, Nicholas called his mother at work. A former nurse, Michele Duda now works at Popeye Restaurant in Salem, N.H. She headed home fast.
Apparently, Keeler was not healing correctly, Michele Duda said.
Being in the midst of a medical scene is not entirely new for Nicholas. He was there when his father, Walter Duda, suffered a heart attack and helped Michele when she was dealing with ovarian cancer, according to the family.
“My parents have taught me to be strong when stuff like this happens and I try to do that,” Nicholas said.
