Teacher donates kidney to student

Nadirah Muhammad doesn't like to be called a hero, but she's certainly a life-saver.

The physical education and health teacher at Detroit's West Side Academy donated a kidney late last year to one of her students, 18-year-old A'Ja Booth.

Booth returned to school today for the first time since the surgery, walking arm-in-arm with Muhammad down a red carpet in the gymnasium as fellow students threw sparkling confetti.

The ceremony celebrated both Booth's recovery and a remarkable gift.
