At yesterday's Yankees game, a "prominent Bronx rabbi's wife [was] choking on a piece of kosher London broil," according to the Daily News. Army medic John Stone, 15 rows away, went over when he saw the commotion and performed the Heimlich maneuver, "I stepped behind her, gave her about five or six abdominal thrusts and eventually she coughed up whatever she was choking on." Just in time—a police source said that Toby Weiss was "panicking" and about to "pass out." Stone, who served in Iraq and got high fives from fellow spectators, got a seat upgrade to right behind home plate when the Yankees heard about his save, "It was incredible. They have the utmost class." And here's how to do the Heimlich.
