We were getting lunch and I started to choke on a Lobster shell in my sandwhich I was going blue….my daughter only 10 yrs old her instincts right away did the heimlick maneuver on me thank goodness I taught her this at a very young age.

@Serey: I’m glad you are okay. I have learned how to do that position to myself on the edge of a table just in case, but what a smart and wonderful 10 year old you have!

@Serey: Wow! That’s awesome – glad you’re ok. My friend had to give me the Heimlich once, thank goodness he knew how!
If you ever listen to Radiolab podcast (and if you don’t, you should!) – there’s a really interesting program on Dr. Heimlich. Apparently before he invented the manuever, choking to death was one of the most common causes of death in the US!
