‘Dirty Harry’ Saves Choking Man

Clint Eastwood came to the rescue on the eve of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, performing the Heimlich maneuver on the event’s chief executive at a dinner to honor volunteers.“I saw that look in his eyes and saw that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their eyes,” Eastwood told the Carmel Pine Cone, the local newspaper. The event's director, Steve John, was snacking on hors d’oeuvres Wednesday night when a piece of cheese got stuck in his throat, setting the stage for Eastwood's rescue. “Clint saved my life,” John said told the paper, describing how the 83-year-old actor/director came up behind him, lifted him off the ground and performed the lifesaving maneuver/Los Angeles Times.

Question: Would you know what to do if someone was choking?
