Dr Heimlich uses ‘maneuver’ for the first time?

 

Seriously!  The 96-year-old retired chest surgeon credited with developing the namesake Heimlich maneuver has used it to save a woman choking on food at his senior living center.

According to Yahoo News, Dr. Henry Heimlich was in the dining room last week at the Deupree House in Cincinnati (where he lives)  when an 87-year-old woman sitting next to him began choking.

Heimlich dislodged food from the woman’s airway and she quickly recovered.

BTW: Heimlich said in interviews that it was actually the first time he’d used the maneuver that bears his name.
