7-year-old Noelia Echavarria was at school when she began choking on her lunch.

Everyone began to panic, but no one at the school came to the girl's aid, her mother Ana Iris Santiago said.

The first-grader choked on a sandwich at PS 250 in Williamsburg. Qwasi Reid, who worked for a private EMT company, was flagged down by a school worker for help.

Reid, who was transporting a nursing home patient, stopped and tried to help Noelia, while his coworker stayed with the patient in the ambulance.

When another ambulance arrived, the girl was transported to the NYU Langone Medical Center, where she is in critical condition.

However, rather than thanking Reid for helping the child, he was suspended because it is against company policy to make a stop without being called.

Father walks free despite confessing to raping his 5-month-old daughter

Aaron Michael Fisher 
By: Feng Qian

(Scroll down for video) Prosecutors in Missouri, were horrified to learn that a judge freed a man who was facing life in prison.

Aaron Michael Fisher of Jefferson City, will not face any prison time after confessing to raping his 5-month-old daughter because he did not get a speedy trial.

Prosecutors said that Fisher, delayed his trial several times over the years before suing for dismissal on grounds that he was not given a speedy trial.

Fisher was arrested in 2009. Fisher was charged with two counts of forcible sodomy for raping his 5-month-old daughter.

He was held in prison without bail ever since.

Last year, Fisher confessed to sexually assaulting the girl and pleaded guilty to the charge in exchange for life in prison with the possibility of parole.

However, he changed his plea a few months later, as he was about to be sentenced. His public defender said that Fisher pleaded guilty because he was frustrated with the system.

Cole County Circuit Judge Patricia Joyce agreed with fisher that he was not given a speedy trial. Now, Fisher was freed just one month before he was set to go on trial.

Former Prosecutor Matt Howard said that his office began building a case against Fisher in 2010. However, it was hard to coordinate the witnesses and Cole County only has two circuit court judges, making trials difficult to schedule.

When the prosecution was ready to go to trial in 2011, Fisher’s attorney motioned for a continuance and had the trial postponed.

That attorney has since retired and Fisher’s new attorney also asked for more time and therefore, things got delayed, according to the prosecutor's office.

After being jailed for 6 years without bail, Fisher walked out a free man. Prosecutor Ben Winfrey is planning to appeal the judge's decision.

(Scroll down for video) Two Muslim men won a lawsuit against a trucking company after they were fired for refusing to transport alcohol.

Star Transport Company of Illinois, was ordered to pay a total of $240,000 to the two Muslim employees who were fired for refusing to deliver beer, citing their religious beliefs.

A jury awarded $40,000 in back pay and $200,000 in punitive damages to the two truck drivers who claimed religious discrimination after they were fired for refusing to make deliveries of beer.

U.S. District Court Judge James E. Shadid ruled in favor of Mahad Abass Mohamed and Abdkiarim Hassan Bulshale, after Star Transport admitted that they could have sent other drivers to do these deliveries.

The workers, who are Somali-American, were represented by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). They argued that the employer had failed to provide “reasonable accommodations” to the employees.

Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, employers must accommodate workers’ religious beliefs unless doing so would impose undue hardship on the business.

The company admitted in court that they sometimes switch drivers’ assignments. The judge found that the trucking company could have given the drivers other products to deliver rather than firing them.
