Easy for Dr. Heimlich


Recently, Dr. Heimlich had to perform the move named after him at an adult living center. The 98 year-old retired chest surgeon was in the room of an 87-year-old woman who began choking.  Heimlich dislodged a piece of hamburger from the woman’s airway and she quickly recovered.  What an awesome story.  This is the second time Dr. Heimlich has done this in his life.  He gets a lot of credit for coming up with this technique and he should.  For others, however, it hasn’t worked out so well.  Recently, Dr. Heinylich tried to perform the move named after him and was quickly arrested.

    That is excellent, bravo for Dr H! (Subsequent reports indicated that at least two lawyers living at the retirement home approached the 87 year old woman to inquire whether she suffered any injury or was experiencing any undue discomfort)
